This guide shows just how beautiful and classy Essex really is when people aren’t trying to do it down as “Chav Central” ! The gentle landscape of the River Stour around Dedham where John Constable painted the Haywain and other great landscapes. Visit Flatford Mill itself and see Willie Lott’s house as in the original painting – still there and unspoilt then move on to the coastal scenery and Thames sailing barges at Maldon and the history and relaxed grace of Audley End house and Saffron Walden deserve a visit. This guide runs to 37 minutes.
