This area of Suffolk has a feel of rural isolation, with large working farms, on the whole managing the countryside very efficiently and yet maintaining well defined rights of way. On this walk a number of realignments have taken place, so older OS maps may not exactly reflect the situation on the ground. In reality the route is easy to follow, just look out for the adequate waymarks. At Frostenden Hall, the right of way is in discussion with the council. I spoke to the farmer, who was most helpful and amenable to walkers. The route is shown crossing a deep moat, but it would be something of a challenge and makes no sense, as there is a concrete roadway 10 metres further on, where he has applied for the diversion. The farmer recounted that a walker had insisted on his right to follow the line shown on the OS map. He was last seen squelching his way back down the drive, having failed miserably. Take the road, enjoy a dry view of the moat.

There are only short road sections and these are along quiet lanes, so fit in well enough. At two points, the walk touches on ground covered in Walk 5908. This is noted in the walk steps.

31.3.12 A lovely quiet walk - very clear instructions especially where paths deviated from the map. We were staying outside Wrentham so followed it from point 2 to point 18.
