40 Coast and Country Walks

Darren Flint and Donald Greig

GBP 6.99

Suffolk has long been a place of retreat, somewhere to escape to, far removed from everyday life. It may have its busier town centres, but in the main Suffolk remains a rural area of enormous variety, from heather-covered heathland to softly rolling hills, long shingle spits to genteel coastal enclaves and kiss-me-quick seaside resorts.

Whether you’re looking for a morning hike or an afternoon stroll, Darren Flint and Donald Greig’s hand-picked selection of 40 walks is guaranteed to fit the bill – or the boot. Suffolk boasts 5600km of public rights of way: take your pick, put your best foot forward and discover this most gentle of English counties.

Description

Suffolk

Suffolk boasts 5600km of public rights of way: take your pick, put your best foot forward and discover this most gentle of English counties. Suffolk may no longer be off the tourist radar or free from London influence, but it remains on the whole a rural landscape, a place of quiet country lanes, pretty villages and, in the east, a glorious coastline. It is also a county with no cities or motorways and boasts some 5600km of public rights of way. Thankfully, even amongst its handful of honeypots, buzzing with visitors and traffic during high season, it is still possible to find isolation and calm.

East Anglia, of which Suffolk is one of the constituent counties, is lowland, but this doesn’t mean it’s completely flat. The fenlands aside, most of the county undulates gently, with some areas, such as the Glem Valley, rolling more than others. ‘Big skies’ is something of a clichéd response to Suffolk, but big they certainly are.

Each of these 40 walks explores much of what makes Suffolk a great outdoors county and, whether you are resident or regular visitor, you should find something new here. If you have never visited Suffolk and are contemplating it, then may this book entice you to roam widely.
