Assington is a small village close to the town of Sudbury on the southern edge of Suffolk. This walk takes you along country lanes and across open fields towards the beautiful 15th Century Parish Church and its nearby hall.

You can just about catch a peak at the hall and it parts of the ruins of the Hall that once stood here before a fire in 1957. The remains appear to be around 16th Century but there are records of a hall here in the Domesday Book.

The route now heads out into the open countryside and follows paths around the north western side of the village, past several farms and through thick woods to return to the village centre.

A nice walk,mostly field edges,but still enjoyed it.GPS reading made it exactly 5 miles A couple of updates needed which are,at waymark 8,when you arrive at the church,you need to go over the stile into the churchyard,then exit by the gate at the car park,you cant go around the church,as its now private.At waymark 11,you need to take the path straight ahead,heading North West,not the left one.At waymark 13,the path along side the building is badly overgrown with stinging nettles.At waymark 14 when you get to the farm,there is no marker post.So as the instructions say at waymark 15,turn left with the farm on the right and a barn on the left and follow the well defined path towards the woodlands.
