Re-walked after 8 years, and enjoyed this walk once again. As mentioned in waymark 11, please be careful crossing the A12,took me ages to cross it. Very very busy.

A very enjoyable walk,working out around 7.5 miles in 3 hours. Heres a few helpful hints. At waymark 4 when you reach the golf course,you descend past the 10th tee,not the 16th,and leave the course at the back of the 12th green. At waymark 5,the fence has been replaced with a kissing gate to arrive at the cart bridge. At waymark 7,you only cross 2 stiles to arrive at the church. At waymark 11,the signpost to Braiswick was lying in the ditch.

An unseasonably mild November Sunday (30th). Very muddy and wet underfoot but a very pleasant short walk. The trip across the A12 made the countryside all the more enjoyable!
