This is a real gem of a walk, starting in Nayland quiet close to The Anchor Inn pub. At the start you follow a beautiful stretch alongside the River Stour before reaching the church at Wiston. Then basically you follow field paths, sections of the Stour Valley Path and St Edmund Way before walking down a delightful enclosed path (Kingsland Lane) with the rest of the route consisting of bridleways and quiet country lanes. You follow the A134 twice but only for a few minutes before you return to the Essex/Suffolk countryside.

All paths were clear (July 2022) apart from a short section through heather between waymarks 11 and 12. At the end you pass through the beautiful village of Nayland with its Tudor style houses and it's worth going for refreshments at The Anchor with it's seating area beside the River Stour.

Sid is spot on with his description of this walk. It is a gem and we'll definitely be back to enjoy it again. Just a couple of comments: Kingsland Lane at WP9 may well be delightful in the summer months, but after so much rain it was a real slog. It can easily be by-passed though. Also, instead of turning right at WP20, we carried on for a further 50m and took the next footpath right and re-joined the route at WP25. This quiet path cuts out the second visit to the very busy A134. Finally, The Anchor Inn is well worth a visit. Thanks for this one Sid.
