Discover the perfect spot for a host of different days out…
Dobbs Weir is definitely one of those special places you’ll want to visit again and again. Relaxing walks, wildlife watching, history, excellent fishing, picnics, a café and nearby pub – Dobbs Weir really does have something for everyone.
It’s also an ideal base for exploring further afield, so if you feel like stretching your legs, just follow the walking routes to Nazeing Meads, Admiral’s Walk and Glen Faba.
There are hard surfaced paths across most of the site, and ample parking, so why not enjoy a day here soon?
Just to the north of Dobbs Weir you’ll discover the wilder, less visited area of Glen Faba. It’s an area of water, grassland, reedbeds and woods – perfect for all kinds of wildlife watching and losing yourself in the sights and sounds of nature. Please be aware that access is mostly via unsurfaced grass paths, and at certain times of the year cattle may be grazing on parts of the site.
Within a 10 minute walk south of Dobbs Weir you’ll find three large lagoons, wildflower meadows, woodlands and a delightful sense of tranquility at Nazeing Meads. You’d never guess that this beautiful space was once an airfield, then gravel quarries and even a landfill site!
Fishing and water sports are popular here, and you can stroll around the whole site on a circular grass surfaced path.
