Follow signs for Gt. Wakering from A127, proceed to the bottom of Wakering High Street until you get to a mini-roundabout by the church, take the right exit and take the immediate left marked New Road. Follow this road down to the MOD security check point and take the road marked 'MOD road open to public'. Drive on this road for about two miles until you get to the sea wall.
WalksFrom the sea wall you can walk either right or left. The right hand walk is the shortest and will offer superb views of waders on the salt marsh at high tide.
The left hand walk can go as far as you want the walk to last. The best stops on this walk are; Wakering Corner where, as the tide comes in, good numbers of waders will be seen close in retreating before the sea. Foulness Island Bridge where there is a sewerage works that attracts flocks of Starling and Finches and, finally, Potton Island Bridge which offers commanding views over Fleethead Creek which is always a good vantage point for raptors.
