The three long-distance routes in this guide – the Suffolk Coast Path, the Stour and Orwell Walk and the Sandlings Walk – explore some of the most appealing landscapes in southern England largely within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB. Easy for those with moderate fitness levels, they can each be walked in a long weekend or all three combined to complete a circuit of the entire Suffolk Heritage Coast, visiting Lowestoft, Felixstowe, Cattawake, Ipswich and Southwold.
The Suffolk Coast Path stretches along the coast between Lowestoft in the north and Landguard Fort, close to Felixstowe in the south, a total distance of 55-60 miles (89-97km) depending on whether beach walking or inland options are followed.
The Stour and Orwell Walk continues where the Suffolk Coast Path ends, starting at Landguard Point threading for 43 mile (69km) around the estuaries of the Stour and Orwell rivers to finish at Cattawade, close to the Essex border.
The Sandlings Walk (59 miles/94.5km) thoroughly explores the heathland region that lies immediately inland from the Suffolk coast. With the exception of the first stage, between Ipswich and Woodbridge, the route of the Sandlings Walk lies entirely within the confines of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB.
The step-by-step route descriptions highlight the many features to be admired among the region’s estuaries, marshes, dunes and sand and shingle beaches and the rich history of the once-key seaports of Southwold, Dunwich and Aldeburgh.
1. A new licensed path has been negotiated with Suffolk County Council from Butley Ferry (TM 393 481) along the river defences to Tide Gauge (TM 415 484) permitting the walker to get all the way to Orford Quay along the river defences. Although not waymarked as such, this would be a more coastal route for the Suffolk Coast Path via Butley Ferry than along the minor road, which the reader found to be suprisingly busy.
2. The maps on pages 65 and 67 of your guide show 2 alternatives to pass Iken Hall: Either continue along the road as indicated on the map or take the waymarked footpath next to the river. The waymarked path between TM 412 560 and TM 403 561 is on the river side of Iken Hall. The text for this section is correct.
