Photos of Stage 11
Toot Hill to Blackmore (7.5 miles)
The stage starts in the middle of the village of Toot Hill just north of the Green Man Pub at the junction of Mill Lane and Toot Hill Road. The route is almost completely off-road and gently undulating following the Essex Way to and through Greensted and onto Chipping Ongar. We divert off the Essex Way to take in some of the sights and history of this old town. On leaving Chipping Ongar we rejoin the Essex Way for a short distance, before leaving it for one last time, then follow St Peters Way through High Ongar and onto the finish at Blackmore.
