Welcome to Wickhambrook

Walk 9 – Skirt the grounds of Denston Hall

This is a shorter walk than normal and has the added advantages of being local and has no stiles. Total distance is 3 miles and at gentle pace it is unlikely to take longer than 2 hours. Maybe an outing for a summer’s evening?

Walk 8 – Stetchworth walk

The Devils Dyke is one of the best preserved Anglo-Saxon earthworks in England. Thought to have been built by the Saxons in the 6th and 7th centuries AD to keep those Britons at bay, the bank and ditch stretches for 7.5 miles between Reach and Wood Ditton…

Walk 7 – No hills in Suffolk, there’s plenty here

Having travelled almost every footpath in Wickhambrook and several over the parish boundary it is now time to move further afield. This is the first of a series of wanders based on neighbouring villages – those within a 10 mile radius of Wickhambrook. Hawkedon and Somerton circular walk…

Walk 5 – Walk to Cowlinge and back

This is the second of a trio of walks to pubs in neighbouring villages, the idea being that you walk there, have a midday snack and make use of the local bus service for the return journey. Please note that this particular pub is only open at lunchtime from Thursday to Sunday and Sunday is an ‘open all hours for roast meal’ day. There is no bus service on Sunday…

Walk 4 – Walk to The Star Inn at Lidgate

eave the Car Park at Wickhambrook village hall and take the footpath on the right that runs between the playing field and the graveyard. Follow this track across a ditch and along the edge of the field (left in the corner) until you reach the road…

Walk 3 – Wickhambrook plus Clopton & Denston

This circular walk heads east to Clopton Green, south to Denston and returns along the brook valley making use of Countryside Stewardship fields, footpaths and quiet country roads. There are two steady climbs but the effort is rewarded by pleasing views of rolling Suffolk countryside. The good news is that over the last month most footpaths have been cut and many crops have been harvested. No section of the route should be overgrown. The walk is approaching seven miles so you may wish to pack a picnic…
