Walking The Most Dangerous Path In Britain 

Ogledi 1,3 mio.

The Broomway is surrounded on both sides by quicksand and deep, sucking mud. It has no markers and no guideposts. And if you mistime your walk, you won't outrun the tide. Oh, and it's in the middle of a Ministry of Defence firing range. But most of the time, if you want to visit Foulness Island, it's the only way.

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe, an irresponsible version of me with a goatee is making a spectacular video that involves trying to outrace the tide on a motorbike, then getting arrested by military police.

As you get arrested, you're probably yelling about how you're a sovereign citizen and so the law doesn't apply to you.

You'd get picked up my MoDplod, not soldiers. Most firing ranges are civilian sites I think, except for the ones they use for training.

We've got the same sort of thing over our side of the thames with 2 or 3 forts along the MOD coastline. From higham to grain. And used to be used mostly for grenade testing. And there's MOD land in chattenden which is great derelict land to wander round

Bro.... I grew up just round the corner from there....... If you are a total idiot that has no idea about the tides its dangerous as fk! If you are a Local shall we say... its the same as walking the streets of london, and i have lived there to... far far more dangerous place! You don't even need to walk anywhere to get into life threatening danger!

My pal crashed his sailing boat into foulness in the fog,pissed as a fart a few years back,The authorities were none too impressed with him.Also In my younger days I did a bit of walking and hiking,I remember once walking across Salisbury plain and noticing that all the signs warning you of the possible danger of ammo hurtling around had been shot and blown to bits😀.

Poms do all of those mentioned, plus trekking mud flats. Australians don’t beat deserts much regardless, too busy ragging abos

This is great. Worked as a graduate oceanographer on Foulness and abandoned a research quad more than once in the sands. Had to tie a buoy to it, run for dry land and retrieve the motor at high tide with a boat.

Most dangerous path? Southern wimps! At least you can swim out of danger, if you can swim - and if you can't you shouldn't be risking it. Get up to the Peak District and we'll show you dangerous paths, where if you slip off the least of your problems will be a broken back.

During the late 80’s I worked for the MoD on Foulness,; the bridge was built after they lost a couple of tanks on the ‘Brromway’, it was deemed cheaper to spend a couple of million pounds on fixed crossing than lose more main battle tanks to the tide!

I live very close to Foulness and people who aren’t locals freak out during the week when you hear a massive B O O M explosion which rattles the windows... they explode expired bombs and also test equipment there, so you’ll just be walking along the street and hear an explosion and everyone will just go “uh, they’re testing again 🙄”
