Throughout this walk you will enjoy the majestic vastness of the East Anglian landscape. The bustling interest of the ancient quay will soon be replaced by the peace and solitude of this beautiful countryside. After a lengthy stretch along two rivers, scarcely separated from the sea, you will return through the pastoral delights of remote country lanes, fields and forest. At the end of the walk, Orford itself is full of historical and maritime interest. Varied birdlife abounds. A smokehouse is well worth a visit, as are Orford Ness, owned by the National Trust, the castle and the church, which has intimate connections with Benjamin Britten.

A less enjoyable experience for us today. The path along the bank is now almost completely overgrown and obscured by thigh high grass and thistles after the first couple of miles. This made the walk really tough going. We then arrived at Waymark 4/5 only to find a dozen horses blocking the gate that we needed to go through so we had to retrace our steps back along the outward route as there was no alternative. A pretty exhausting 11 miles in the end!

A most enjoyable walk on excellent tracks and with no navigational issues at all.
