This is a good walk, with paths mostly in good order and well-signed. There are good views too of the Suffolk countryside. The Duke William is a nice pub, closed on Tuesdays, but open for food the rest of the week. If you have any complaints about the paths, please ring Suffolk Rights of Way Officer on 0844-800-0101.

Did walk today and thought these updates might be useful. 1) At Waymark 3 kept to OS footpath which had been reinstated across field. Rather vigorous rape crop did make walking a little difficult but path was clear to see and there was a 'private' notice at the far end of the detour suggested in the directions. 2) Found the path between Waymarks 6-8 impossible to follow. Gave up returned to road and detoured via Foxes Lane and Hollow Lane. At Waymark 6 there was a fingerpost but a new crop was growing and there was no indication as to the track of the path. At Waymark 7 a crop of wheat (2 feet high and impassable without doing damage) covered a very large open field and there was no sign of any path (we walked all along the edge and looked carefully). The Hollow Lane end of the path (Waymark 8) is marked with a finger post and stile leading up a drive through a garden with the stile and opening through the hedge onto the field at the top end clearly visible. Shall contact Suffolk Right of Way. Start of walk delightful but Hunter's Lane disappointing - agricultural prairie on either side for much of way. Good views across undulating landscape.
