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…

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 24 – Denham Castle

This is a walk for those who enjoy open countryside and big skies. It starts with much field edge walking but rewards come later with the skirting of Denham Castle mound and a return through a deer farm…

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…
