Walk 27 – Ousden Return

This circuit of almost eight miles and three hours walking is possible in winter, most underfoot surfaces are green lanes or minor roads, but could be more enjoyable and relaxing during the spring to autumn period. The most useful companion map is Ordnance Survey Explorer 210 covering Newmarket and Haverhill…

Walk 26 – Hargrave and Chevington

Walk 26 – Hargrave and Chevington

The walk explores the countryside around and between the two villages making use of mainly field edge paths and quiet country roads. There are some gentle slopes and the circuit is a mix of wide open spaces and village edges. At almost 7 miles it is a longer walk than usual but when you reach the seats in Chevington churchyard you are more than halfway round…

Walk 25 – A Hundon Walk

Walk 25 – A Hundon Walk

This route which takes you from Hundon to Poslingford and back is just over five miles and if you wish for a picnic midway there are several seats in Poslingford churchyard. The walk is one of undulating contrasts with one particularly long cross-field path which should be clearly indicated, good views and several short sections of great interest. Enjoy…

Walk 24 – Denham Castle Walk

This is a walk of two halves which starts with much field edge walking and typical countryside views but rewards you later with a possible viewing of rare breeds (cattle and sheep), a skirting of Denham Castle mound and a return through one of the only deer farms in the area. The whole circuit is over six miles and takes about three hours at a leisurely pace…

Walk 23 – Stanstead Walk

Walk 23 – Stanstead Walk

This walk has the distinction of going through the area of the highest point in Suffolk. This is supposed to be in Stanstead Great Wood but this does not agree with the contours on the Explorer 196 Sudbury, Hadleigh and Dedham Vale Ordnance Survey map which show a higher point to the west. The circuit also takes you down part of the drive and through the grounds of Kentwell Hall. The distance is almost 7 miles…

Walk 22 – A Kedington Hills Circuit

There used to be a newspaper cutting on display in the porch of Kedington church which read – ‘Sir, I note the correspondence regarding a proper Christian response to bats in the spire. As the incumbent of a typical Anglican parish, I can assure you that the only answer is to get the bats baptised and confirmed. In my experience, you will never see them again’. This has now been removed but the church is well worth a visit. This can be at the start or end of this 5.5 mile walk around the hills of Kedington area…
