Along with a number of our other walks in the vicinity of Sudbury (the painter Gainsborough's home town), this one takes you through an area accessible only by narrow country lanes and through largely unspoiled countryside which can have changed but little over a considerable period of time.

The exceptions in this case are the proximity of the Sudbury television transmitter masts and the farm at Workhouse Green, part of whose buildings are now used for commercial enterprises, including a children's nursery, through the playground of which, surprisingly, the public footpath passes. As a result of this you should be aware that our photograph at Waymark 6 had to be carefully taken to avoid showing children at play. You go through the gate seen in the bottom left of the picture, not along the path between the wooden fences parallel with the road.

In the churchyard at the end of the walk you may like to look for the grave of the parents of the Knights family. It appears they had 16 children, two of whom are remembered on gravestones close to that of their parents.
