The walk as described leaves the market town of Mildenhall and initially follows a main road, then a minor road, before heading off into the countryside and returning alongside a quiet waterway. The terrain here is very flat, hence the proliferation of air bases during and since WW2. Both Mildenhall and Lakenheath are named as RAF..., but both are under occupation by Uncle Sam.

The walk is okay under wet conditions, so is a good leg-stretcher for the winter months. One or two sections can be a bit muddy, but not excessively so.

I loved this walk, a plane spotters dream. The jets at Lakenheath felt close enough to touch and the sound took my breath away. Then seeing the large transporters through the tree canopy as they came into land awesome. This walk had everything and will be one to try each season.
