A pleasant leisurely walk through gently rolling countryside. Interesting churches, both ruined and working. Saxlingham Neathergate is nice with a good picnic spot at the little green/memorial. Parking at the start is on-street and rather limited so unless you arrange with the Globe pub may be difficult for a group walk. Quite a bit of quiet road walking but there are couple of places where paths could be taken instead. Firstly in description paragraph 1 go straight over Hawes Green Lane, cross one field then TL on path to St Mary's Church, then on to adjacent St Martins. Secondly in paragraph 6, at NE corner of Little Wood TL on to Boudicca way and follow this back to Shotesham thus avoiding Market Lane.
