This walk starts off by the church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Gillingham. The brick-built church was constructed in 1898 by Frederick Banham and is worth a little look around. The walk then passes St Mary's Church which is only a hundred yards from the last church and is a beautiful stone one – again well worth a little walk around! Another 100 yards down the road you will come across the remains of All Saints Church. I am unsure of when the church was built but it appears that people still wanted to invest money into the church in 1470, but it was in ruins by the 18th Century. The ruins are completely accessible and worth a look around with the many graves and gravestones slowly being concealed by the undergrowth. After passing the war memorial nearby the route crosses several fields and also the A143 to enter Geldeston Hall Estate. The estate is well-managed with the hall over to the south, which can be seen better about half a kilometre further along the route. The path from the estate passes Geldeston Church and follows country lanes and footpaths east into Gillingham.
