Many people may wonder where Gusted Hall Woods are. They back on to The Keddies Estate, aka The Lawn, Rochford. Don’t go into the well fenced off area as they do paintball and you might get shot! 🙂 You may come across Bluebell Wood with it’s thick blue carpet in spring. They also link up with Hockley Woods, and Grove Woods. In fact you can walk from Hockley to Eastwood by cutting through this area, flanked by oil seed rape fields of golden yellow.
Access is just off the Main Road, near Potash Nursery. You will see a long straight road heading up into the fields, this is Gusted Hall Lane, Postcode SS5 4JL. Just follow this, and you will find limited parking at the end of this road. Walk straight down the main path through the trees, and turn left as soon as you walk over a bridge and stream.
