Family Friendly Routes (Aged 10+) - Gosfield

This route is largely flat and on quiet roads, suitable for families with children over 10 years old.  The route includes lots for children to see and do and for extra fun there is a quiz on the map as you cycle round.

This route starts and finishes at Gosfield village, an area steeped in history.  Samuel Courtauld purchased Gosfield Hall in the 1800s, provided new housing for his workers as well as a primary school, coffee and reading rooms. 

Later in history, during the Second World War, Essex was home to several thousand US Airmen.  The first USAAF service men arrived in 1942 and by May 1944 there were 43390 servicement at the 16 US airbases throughout the county, including at Gosfield.

There are many scenic walks and a nature reserve to be explored in Gosfield, as well as picnic opportunities at the park and at Gosfield lake.
