The three long-distance walks described in this book - the Suffolk Coast Path, the Stour and Orwell Walk and the Sandlings Walk - link together to provide a comprehensive and varied circuit of the entire Suffolk Heritage Coast. The Suffolk Coast Path stretches along the coast between Lowestoft and Landguard Fort, close to Felixstowe in the south, a total distance of 60 miles (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 40 mile (64km) 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) 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 & Heaths AONB. With a unique landscape of cliffs, marshes, dunes and shingle beaches, and rare plants and birdlife galore, there is much to attract anyone seeking interesting day walks or longer multi-day itineraries.

Thanks to Colin Park for these observations
Stage 2. Text is fine but map on page 130 is shown slightly wrong. Between TM287503 – TM290501 the path stays along the riverside embankment and does not go via Melton Station as shown. Also between TM292500 – TM294501 the path goes via the boardwalk north of the A1152 and does not go via the A1152 and Common Lane as shown on the map.
Stage 3. Although the text is fine the map on page 135 is slightly wrong around Tangham House. Between TM352480 and TM354484 the signed path goes north through woods prior to getting to Tangham House then east passing a toilet block and through car park to reach north/south lane. The correct route from here is TM359492 then north via TM359495 then west northwest to TM358495 - not direct in a straight line as shown on the map.
Stage 6. Text is OK but the maps on pages 150/152 are shown slightly wrong. From the coast through Goose Hill, the signed route from TM475645 goes inland to cross a footbridge at TM473644 then hugs the southern edge of the Goose Hill plantation via TM468645 to TM466646 - it does not go via the track passing the 9-metre trig point. (Note the latest OS 1:25,000 map shows this incorrectly too.)
