You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk. Join or log in above if you are already a member. Access is available to Walkingworld subscribers or you can buy the walk individually for £1.95 once you are logged in.

You have the opportunity to visit the NT property at Dunwich Heath (wheelchairs can be used over a fair proportion of the heathland and can be borrowed by private arrangement. There is also the facility to borrow or be driven in powered carriages). In addition you can visit the ancient, formerly influential town of Dunwich (now a small village, with much of its former splendour under the sea). There is a very interesting museum and a superb and widely renowned fish restaurant there. The fish are landed on the beach within feet of the kitchen door.

There is a pub at Dunwich and another quaint old one at Eastbridge, named the Eel's Foot. You have several opportunities to visit the RSPB Reserve at Minsmere - an internationally famous and important site with a very wide variety of birdlife and innumerable 'twitchers'! You then walk on through the majestic woodland of Sizewell Belts and arrive close to the famous power stations. There is a visitor centre there which is well worth a visit.
Finally you have the long stretch back along the seashore or through the dunes back to your start point.
