    Balloon Rides In Essex

    According to the will of the winds, your flight may carry you over the mediaeval town of Witham on the banks of the River Brain, or up over the forested slopes of the River Colne and the town of Wivenhoe. The Essex landscape is dotted with windmills which can be seen from the air, including the one built by John Webb at Thaxted that is considered a masterpiece.

    The flight paths often overlook the small and picturesque local town of Billericay, an area of wooded country with a number of Georgian and period houses standing out as landmarks, and over the nearby Norsey Wood Nature Reserve.

    The historic town of Chelmsford, county town since the 14th Century, provides another interesting vista along the route, and with its mix of historic architecture and modern-day activity can be a final highlight for a balloon trip over this beautiful English county area.
