I did this route this evening, with some slight alterations - I stayed on the B1007 rather than bearing left onto Little Dunton Road on the way back to the Laindon. I hoped it would be a shortcut but instead it was an absolute whoppper of a hill. Not sure if it would be avoided the other way. I thoroughly enjoyed myself nonetheless. The Bell in Hordon Hill was very nice as well, I plan to eat there next time.
