Walks in the Slow Lanes of Suffolk

Walks in the Slow Lanes of Suffolk

author: Angie Jones
Suffolk - a county of beautiful rolling farmland and narrow, winding lanes leading to sleepy villages and ancient wool towns with towering churches and forgotten castles. This book invites you to explore twenty-five gentle walks. It is for the unhurried wanderer who likes to linger, those with an afternoon to spare and time to reflect over a cuppa and cake.

The walks explore tiny hamlets where humble cottages cluster around a country church built from hand-gathered flints or villages full of grand timber-framed houses, evidence of the prosperous woollen cloth trade; or walks that simply explore woodlands, fields and footpaths around isolated farmsteads.

Each walk has a coloured hand painted map and pastel sketch as well as descriptive, personal recollections, all the work of the author, Angie Jones. There is also background information and local history, (sometimes from the mouths of people she meets along the way) to enhance the adventures and create a journey of discovery. Each walk entry includes a practical information panel giving distance, time, start location, terrain, OS Explorer map sheet number, refreshments, and instructions for getting there. There are plenty of colour photographs throughout the book.
