Due to a major problem with our previous website we have had to start again so many of the comments we have unfortunately lost.
Thanks to you both for taking my sister Julia and I on the Broomway. I've been wanting to walk the Broomway for years and it didn't disappoint! It is a magical experience. The combination of the apparently endless sands and the extraordinary light were fantastic. Brian was a mine of information on the fascinating ancient path. I would love to walk the Broomway again as I gather it is always different. Best wishes Caroline
Thanks for a great day out yesterday !
I think Marion will ache for days but I hope in the end the enforced exercise will do her good.

I'd just like to say how much I and my husband Miles enjoyed the walk on the Broomway at the beginning of August. We've never encountered a land (or sea-)scape quite like it before! I can see how easily folk must have gotten lost and drowned in the 19th century (especially if they'd been to the pub in Wakering beforehand). We loved all the history and anecdotes you had for us as well, very interesting. My mum has sent me a photocopy of the relevant chapter of John MacFarlane's book where he seems to have gotten away with wandering around in the mist on his own out there but worry not we have no intention of copying him! We've been walking around Essex - on dry land - since then, including the sea wall at Bradwell.

Dear Brian and Toni - Over a number of years Nature Break has worked with the Foulness Conservation and Archaeological Society in providing tours of Foulness. During this time we have come to have a close working relationship. As a partnership, we have developed a unique brand of what is now called "Eco - tourism". Your guests, many of whom have now become friends have appreciated what we are trying to achieve on Foulness, both in terms of conservation and "heritage". Without your patronage and steady supply of keen and interested visitors our job of funding the Heritage Centre would be made that much more difficult. With the support of Nature Break, the FCAS has raised thousands of pounds which has gone to essential projects to keep our museum going. Your support has meant we have re-roofed the centre, built new toilets, and a new kitchen. It has helped us make the centre wheelchair friendly. We have been able to update the displays and continue a programme of research and education. Nature Break, and spin-offs from your visits have helped us in all of our projects. I just thought that I would write to you in appreciation of what Nature Break has done for the FCAS during our long partnership. Best Wishes Peter Carr, Chairman FCAS, Heritage Centre
Belated thanks for your excellent guided walk along the Broomway last Sunday 23rd August 2015. A unique experience in a special place, not possible without your knowledge. We also very much enjoyed your company and Toni's, and the wealth of interesting information you shared with us.
