Walking The Most Dangerous Path In Britain

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.
