Simon Walsh

I have lived in a North East Essex village for nearly 25 years with my wife Patricia and our four daughters. We can trace our Essex roots back to the 1700s, Patricia to a family of Church Rectors from Radwinter and mine to farm labourers based near Witham. Clearly my interest in the Countryside must be genetic! After studying marine biology, I started work managing a large Nature
Reserve in Devon, later moving to Hertfordshire to join the County Council there as a Countryside Manager.
