Broaks Wood, Halstead
- Couples fucking, Friday & Saturday nights, after 10.30, good, private spot
- between Halstead and Gosfield.
Bulphan. Old Brentwood Road, Opposite the Plough motel
- Set back off the main road this is a very busy spot for bi gay and straight fun. Turn left opposite plough motel and follow road round until past last house on left. It is a through road which joins back onto A128 but lots of stopping places and bushes for outdoor fun. Lots of evidence of fun here as in clothing mags etc.
Chalkney Woods, Earles Colne
- Follow the a120 past Coggeshall going towards Colchester till you come to the cross roads of Earles Colne and Coggeshall turn left towards Earles Colne and follow the road to the end. Turn right and take your very next left this turning is concealed as its on a bend if you have gone under the bridge you have gone to far. Once you have turned right you will be driving for a short while in a residential area don't worry you have only got a few more yards till you see a sign saying Chalkney Woods follow up the single track road which will lead you to a large well covered and enclosed car park this road is a little bumpy but don't worry good point with this site is that you can see other vehicles approaching with out them knowing you are already there. Well hidden but a great site. Used quite a lot for dog walkers during the day but at night there is action
- Howe green On the roundabout coming out of Chelmsford going to the A130 take the Howe green exit (one before A130) then immediately left into small turning. There are houses near the bottom of this dead end, but on Sundays at about 10.30 women and men head to the middle of this little road for some action. See you there!
- A small car-park opposite the Camelot Pub in Chigwell. You can often watch couples fucking on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11pm onwards.
Childerditch and Halfway house
- Its worth mentioning that both these sites are mostly gay. Also the authorities are very aware of the sites and actively policed. This is mainly due to it being a large and popular country park for families and dog walkers. There have been numerous incidents reported of doggers actively and at times aggressively harassing non dogging members of the public. Boy racers also meet at the Chiderditch car park and often anti-gay graffiti can be seen at the site.
- Behind the Queen Elizabeth hunting lodge. Can get busy but needs more couples and single females.
- Turn into rangers road from Epping new road. Go past the pub on the right. Turn right then it's about 500 yards on the right.
- Holland Haven Country Park, situated on the coast between Clacton and Frinton-on-Sea. A big place, but some car fun is to be found with occasional joining in.
Coggeshall A120 Lay by
- Trees have all been cut back. Not sure that the gay dogging there still continues. Be extra careful.
- along the bridge by Abberton reservoir most nights
- Dogging in Colchester can be found at the car-park in Friday Woods on Friday and Saturday nights after 10.30. Quite a few couples in cars.
- Also, there's a great dogging site at a place called Cudmore Grove, on Mersea Island.
- On the A120 between Colchester and Braintree. Going towards Braintree on the A120 go past the third turning on the left to Coggeshall then look for a white P on a blue background sign, Lay by unseen from road as is behind trees, action all the time, mostly gay, but some couples for dogging at night.
- Just with in the last few weeks, all the trees have been cut down by the local land owner!!!! So the scope for fun has been cut down big time!!!! Manly gay, but some times couples...Happy Hunting

Follow road out of Boreham Village towards Danbury, on back road about 1 mile after bridge over river, turn left where signposted to FORD, half a mile down on right, park up, walk into field, go down to bottom, hang around for a while, and have fun.
Eastbrookend Country Park
- The Chase, Eastbrookend Country Park, seen plenty of action here drive down as if your going to cemetery but stop anywhere on l/h side before cemetery you will see plenty of action. getting better all the time. I have noticed that Thursady & Friday nights are the best, however u do seem to get a few stragglers during the week. You just got to try your luck. Best time for this is between 5pm-5am give it a shot
- first parking area heading towards Theydon bois. Like Piccadilly circus as in cars in and out constantly once dark. Even had people walk up to my van and look in hoping for action! Definitely the place to be and forest is well secluded. The further you go in the more discreet. I jog naked there every night and want some action! So come on boys and join me?

Hainault Forest and Country Park
- There are two car parks here but the furthest one is where all the dogging happens. Also, people leave their cars & go into the woods for action too.
- Church Road, Hutton off Hanging Hill Lane and Hall Green Lane. Opposite the church itself, there is parking for about 4 cars with a footpath and some woods right on the edge of the parking area. Great action for voyeurs some nights.
- A secluded car park just past the Clements Hall round about on the left up a long road going to Edwards Hall Park, off the main road going into Hockley, being as it is a newish location there is not much activity at the moment, but it is an excellent location for dogging, so get up there and get dogging, and maybe I will see you up there sometime
