Welcome to Wickhambrook

Walk 34 – Brockley Circuit

This is a circular route around the village of Brockley and has the proud distinction of never visiting the village of Brockley. The 8.5 mile circuit makes use of the Bury St Edmunds to Clare long distance walk in the north/south direction and an old green lane cum bridleway in the south/north direction. There are sufficient undulations and views and variation to make life interesting without providing too much of a struggle…

Walk 33 – Whepstead Wander

This five mile circuit, two and a half hours of walking at gentle pace, makes use of a stretch of the Bury St Edmunds to Clare path and includes two short sections across fields but the route is regularly walked so they should be clear of crops and accessible all year round. There is a small amount of quiet road walking but pavements or verges are available along most of the distance. Most walking is done on field edge paths…

Walk 32 – From Dalham to Wickhambrook

Why not make use of the newly introduced Demand Response Transport system (further details in the Parish Council notes section) get a lift to Dalham and find your way back, or if you have access to a second car leave the first outside the church at Dalham and collect it later…

Walk 31 – Denston

This route will take you there and back in under three hours at leisurely pace. Most of the circuit is on field edge paths or minor roads with pavements. There is a seat outside the church that almost overlooks the village green. Please note that on one section of the return journey the path has been diverted and is not as shown on even the most recent copy of the Ordnance Survey Newmarket and Haverhill 210 Explorer map, but it is clearly waymarked…

Walk 30 – Cheveley and Ashley

This 7.5 mile circuit makes use of well maintained paths around some of the Newmarket studs and a section of the Icknield Way, supposedly the oldest road in Britain. The latter was already ancient when the Romans came and extends from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Knettishall Heath in Norfolk along the chalk ‘spine’ of England…

Walk 28 – Hawkedon Circular Walk

Walk 28 – Hawkedon Circular Walk

The Hawkedon website states ‘Hawkedon is one of the strangest places in Suffolk. There’s nowhere else quite like it. Here, in the rolling landscape between Haverhill and Bury, is where the Chiltern Hills come to die. On their journey through Bedfordshire and Essex they become lower and softer, with the occasional last stabs of glory before sinking beneath the Suffolk heathlands…
