50 Walks in Suffolk

50 Walks in Suffolk

by: Tony Kelly
For walkers the easternmost county of England offers surprising variety. You can walk among farmland, heathland, forest, river valleys, estuaries and coast. Much of the countryside has been given over to intensive agriculture, but there are still plenty of hedgerows, ponds and marshes, attracting birds and other wildlife, as well as interesting towns and villages to explore.

The walks in this book have been chosen to capture the essence of Suffolk in all its diversity. You will visit medieval wool towns such as Lavenham and Long Melford with their timber framed houses and magnificent churches. You will discover picture-book villages from Somerleyton in the north to Kersey in the south and Cavendish and Dalham in the west. You will explore the great tidal estuaries of the Debden, Orwell and Stour, and the peaceful river valleys of the Blyth, Gipping and Lark. You will follow the coast from disappearing Covehithe to bustling Felixstowe.

The guide includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour clear waypointed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel giving distance, time, ascent, grid references and car parking followed by a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
