Suffolk Walking Festival Returns


Tickets are now on sale for The Suffolk Walking Festival as it returns for its 14th instalment after a two year absence due to Covid.

Launching on 14 May 2022 at Clare Country Park, the festival boasts over 70 guided walks that will take you across wild countryside, outstanding landscapes, rolling hills, forests, and coastal beauty spots. With lots of weekend, evening and family walks. The programme has accessible, short, medium, long-distance walks, and more challenging walks – so there is something for everyone.

The festival, which holds the title as one of the longest running events of its kind in the UK grows in popularity each year and is perfect for showcasing  some of Suffolk’s most beautiful scenery which makes up part of the 3,500 miles of public rights of way across the county.

This year’s programme will discover a dragon in the iconic Stour Valley, explore Hawkedon’s horizons through idyllic green villages, celebrate 75 years at RSPB, tell stories of smugglers and shipping routes at Dunwich Heath, and spend time watching Sweep the sheepdog, in action managing Orford Ness Nature Reserve’s very own herd of rare breed sheep.

You can tune into bats on a twilight safari through ancient woodland at Priestley Wood, brush up your whittling skills and make damper bread over an open fire in the woods at Thornham Walks, and get crafty at Brandon Country Park finding willow, sticks, leaves and rushes in the woods to make and keep your own creations.

Suffolk Walking Festival

Moulton Three Churches Nordic Walk is the closest walk to Newmarket and is scheduled for Tuesday 24th May starting at St Peter’s Church in Moulton at 10 am. This three hour walk, covering 7 miles and apparently  14,000 steps,  costs £8. The walk  incorporates three Parish churches, Dalham Hall and wonderful views including that of Ely Cathedral. Starting in Moulton the path climbs up to Gazeley via a couple of stiles, along the ridge and then back down into Dalham, passing by each of the village churches along part of the Icknield Way, thought to be one of the oldest roads in Britain. This walk leads you through fields, woodland, short stretches of country lanes and by the River Kennett.
