STOP Stansted Expansion (SSE) is holding a 'heritage hike' on Sunday September 20 to highlight the potential threat to historic homes, countryside and the community from a second runway at Stansted Airport.
A four-mile circular walk has been organised by SSE's footpaths expert Stuart Walker in conjunction with Douglas Kent, technical adviser to the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.
Hikers will set off at 2pm after a commemorative photo from Molehill Green. Route maps and descriptions of historical sites will be provided to those taking part and a sizzling barbecue will be held from 1pm to 5pm for departing and returning ramblers.
SSE's campaign director, Carol Barbone, said: "This is our eighth annual ramble and the emphasis on heritage this year is designed to remind people about the lasting impacts on communities in this area if the runway were ever to be constructed."
