Overview

Led by Valerie & David

We start from Nowton Park on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds with Cafe & Toilet facilities, to walk into the surrounding countryside and heading back into Bury for lunch, either picnic in the Abbey Gardens or take in a cafe or pub - so much choice! There is then a short stroll back to Nowton park. Note that this path back is very likely to be wet if not very wet.

Around 7miles ish.

The car park cost is £3 cash/card or ringo
