From the Chelmsford road at Margaret Roding it was off into the hills again on the loneliest lanes yet. One led me deep down into a cutting and a ford where the water was more than a metre deep in the middle, and the stretch of road covered by water at least 30 feet. No car could possibly have got through it, and it did have a sign saying 'unsuitable for motor vehicles'. I used the footbridge, although most of the traffic around here seemed to be horses anyway. The towers of previously-visited Pleshey and High Easter appeared on the ridge to the north in stunning sunshine - I had visited them in February snow two years ago. I came to the long village of Good Easter and St Andrew. Open. A huge barn of a church, pretty much all of its middle-brow rebuilding by that local vandal Chancellor after a fire in the late 19th Century. Rather dull and gloomy inside I fear, but obviously well loved and looked after.
