(29) 10:00 am – Hawkedon Horizons – Hawkedon
Outside St Mary's Church, Hawkedon Green, Hawkedon IP29 4NH
We explore the rolling hills of Suffolk and the idyllic green villages of Hawkedon, Denston and Stansfield near Bury St Edmunds. Our walk contains 5 lakes, a tower mill, a few halls and the most stunning timber-framed, thatched building. The building is probably from the 13th century and appears totally out of the blue. It has been restored by The Landmark Trust and can only be reached on foot.
Car parking £FREE
SOLD OUT (30) 10:30am – Deben Valley Delights – Easton
The Green by Easton White Horse, The Street, Easton, IP13 0ED
Easton is well known for its crinkle-crankle wall that surrounds the former estate of the Duke of Hamilton. We follow the path round the estate boundary, keeping the River Deben to our right, and follow the perimeter of Easton Farm Park before continuing up to visit the site of a former Augustinian priory by Letheringham Church.
Expect some uneven or muddy paths. After heavy rain parts of the route can get flooded, in which case an alternative walk round Easton will take place. Toilets available for customers only at the White Horse pub. Please park in the small car park opposite Easton White Horse IP13 0ED. Car parking £FREE.
(31) 14:00 pm – Woads, Weavers and Wizards – Lavenham
Car park next to the Cock Horse Inn, Church Street, Lavenham CO10 9SA
As you weave around the Medieval streets of Lavenham with your Blue Badge Guide the tale of this beautiful village will unfold. It’s a story of the wool trade and money interwoven with artists, nursery rhymes and even blockbuster films – see how Lavenham has been used as a film location, including one about a very famous boy wizard!
Walk is mainly on pavements and footpaths. Expect some pavements to be narrow and sloping. Cafes and tea rooms available for refreshments after the walk. Car parking £FREE
