A very nice route, lots of good corners, you need to keep an eye out for dog walkers and cars near the Wrabness woods and gravel on the steep hill near Bradfield other than that just the usual hazards.
The route is a bit short but tied up with the B1414 from Thorpe-le-Soken to Ramsey and the B1035 from Mistley to Thorpe-le-Soken it makes the trip out worth it.
I livee in the village, so would suggest when you get to the T junction take the Right more bends & fun then you come in to manningtree as you enter manningtree big memorial left turn keep to the 30 up the hill past the 9 to 4 police station first left signed for claction a bit more fun at the end you come out ner the left turn & water tower either go straight across to join up a nother route to st osyth or hed of towards Walton on the naze
I Start the route from Ramsey which is the B1352. An excellent road, tight bends that will catch you out if you are not paying attention or giving it abit too much!! But watch out, we are in tractor country, so be aware of occasional crap on the road and the the flat cap club on sundays. After a few miles you will come to a T-Juction, take a left for more sweeping bends and that will lead you into Mistley. I love this road, everytime i ride it, i want it to be my Groundhog Day. Vlad
The tourist route to Manningtree, quite a nice if short run in Essex, it starts off quite blind and tight, then it opens up with a few nice corners and good visibility. Also easily accessible from Harwich where you can take the ferry to or from Holland.
