Suffolk Way by Ian St. John
Suffolk Way is a 109 mile (174km) walk through
rural Suffolk beginning at Flatford, a hamlet associated with the English
landscape painter John Constable, where paintings of the surrounding countryside
epitomise the beauty and tranquillity found here. Suffolk Way takes you through
Constable Country via the Box Valley in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty leading to the beautiful medieval wool town of Lavenham with its
remarkable concentration of ancient timber-framed buildings.
Travelling northeast you cross the remote interior
of Suffolk with its open wheat n' beet clayland landscape and distinctive
villages. You come to appreciate why locally the area is known as "High
Suffolk". After Halesworth Suffolk Way leads you east over sandland beside
the River Blyth by grazing marsh and heath, pasture and woods, mudflats and
saltings, to the sea at Walberswick. Here you turn north along Suffolk's
spectacular Heritage Coast to finish at Lowestoft.
