Geocache Description:

The second in a series set out around this lovely English parish.  The walk is just over 3 miles and passes through fields and lanes.  It is suitable for families although there are several stiles - buggies probably not suitable.  Parking in the street near the church.  The route passes through several horse paddocks - the horses ignore you, but please keep the geohounds on a lead through here.

In 1861, White's Directory of Essex had the following entry:  ROXWELL, a pleasant village near one of the sources of the river Can, 4½ miles W. by N. of Chelmsford, has in its parish 827 souls, and 4,755 acres of land, including 120a of wood, 86a. of waste, and many scattered houses, extending northward to Boyton Cross and Chalk-end; and more than two miles south, to the small villages of Radley-Green and Cook’s Mill Green; the latter of which is partly in Writtle parish.
The soil is cold and moist--springs being found everywhere in digging a few feet; and the river Can, and its tributaries, flowing through, and nearly half encompassing the parish.

Small pot in a camo bag, please replace well tucked under.

Upon leaving this cache, continue across the field.
