Bradfield Combust is a small village south of Bury St Edmunds. The village is spread out over a large area with small groups of houses tucked away in little corners. This route starts off close to the main road and follows a route through a small orchard to a fishing-lake. The fishing-lake is a nice feature, attracting birds and all kinds of wildlife, so take a moment to see what's about.

The route follows quiet country lanes and footpaths to cross wide open fields and passes close to areas of woodland (look out for buzzards soaring above). The return takes you along field edges to a footpath through the grounds of Bradfield Hall. The hall is about 100m from the path across a small pond and is a lovely building. The estate grounds are a joy to walk through, with woodpeckers calling away high in the trees.
