This is a circuit that takes you through a sparsely populated area of Suffolk, where not a lot has changed in hundreds of years. It is quite delightful, even though it means that there are no pubs and no bus services. In particular, the section from Waymark 8 to the end is breathtaking, at first along a bridleway and then on a glorious tunnel-like green lane (byway). The paths are in very good shape throughout. There are four stiles – none of them difficult.

This is the 6th walk from walkingworld that myself and a friend have done. We found these directions to be the best, both to the start of the walk, and for the walk itself. The distances between navigation points was especially useful as one or two of the fingerposts were a bit overgrown. We also appreciated mention of landmarks that you need to head towards. The only 'diversion' we needed to take was at point 2 due to the path across the field (described as 'straight ahead on cross-field path {well-reinstated} to reach minor road') due to the field having been completely ploughed up. It was possible to walk around the edges, and we would recommend going right and then left as this brings you out just before the Methodist chapel. In early December following weeks of heavy rain parts of this walk were very muddy and across fields of heavy clay soil.
