This walk is close to the borders of Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. Using good field-paths you have the opportunity to visit a number of churches, with excellent views along the way and the remains of a great oak tree which was already recorded on maps as 'great' in 1777. The villages of Ridgewell and Great Yeldham are old and picturesque and there is a long section of delightful path beside woodland and a meandering stream.

Note: there are 2 bridges at point 10. The 1st is a wooden bridge of which the platform has been washed away further downstream. The 2nd is passable with some good footwear, as the river which is quite fast flowing passes over it to about ankle height. Please note we walked this route in January, with frost on the ground, but not any substantial rain fall over the last few days
