I cycled a little further and stopped in South Weald Country Park for a comfort Break, lovely to see a field full of Bluebells.
From here I continued up the road and turned into Honeypot Lane and then onto London Rd A1023 and onto Brentwood High Street. The High Street has been cobbled and obviously cyclist aren't welcome here, how are we expected to cycle on that!!
I continued onto Shenfield Road and then Roman Road and stopped further up at Mountnessing by the windmill.
From here I ran on through into Ingatestone and still following the Roman road I stopped in Margaretting for a couple of pictures.
From here I rode under the A12 and up the Three Mile Hill and onto London Road. I made my way into Chelmsford, where I made the decision based on time I would stop off in Chelmsford have a look around the Cathedral and catch a train back to Romford. Maldon will have to wait for another day. 25 miles in total for the day and took about 1 hour 30 mins to get to Chelmsford.
