Really nice walk and lovely views over the River Alde and the marshes. It was ridiculously muddy when walking from the river towards the town. Very wet feet for those without wellies! At one point we had to walk along planks of wood and old tyres that had been left in the mud.

One of our favorite place

A nice walk after a pub lunch. Took about an hour and a half, stunning views of the river.

What a lovely place to go for a walk! We stopped off at the ship inn, amazing big beer garden and was dog friendly. We had a pork and black pudding scotch egg and cheesy chips (and a sausage for the doggo). We wandered slightly off course but made it back on the Suffolk coastal path. Would highly recommend. (I’m disabled - nerve damage in my right leg, but I managed this walk) we now have a very sleepy dog!

Lovely walk with shingle beach, heath and woodland, Minsmere and great views of Sizewell dome!

nice walk via The Ship Inn ( cod and chorizo, coconut rum and pineapple cheesecake), very nice beer garden, good food, dappled shade forest, went wrong at the end through 2 caravan parks trying to find the beach, the one we want is the holiday park rather than static park, map near restaurant shows steps to beach which are otherwise hard to find

A little overgrown in places but a nice easy stroll. Heather starting to look very pretty. Route very easy to follow. At the start views of the old windmill and House in the Clouds. Able to park close to Uplands Rd at the beginning but we may have got lucky. Nice sea breeze on the coast path back to Thorpeness. Followed by fish and chips in Aldeburgh and a pint of Adnams.

Whilst the first 4 miles of this walk takes in the beautiful scenery of the river , the trail the map sends you from north cove to Beccles is walking on the grass verge of the A146 which is not suitable for families or dog walkers, we found a path that runs near this to the village of worlingham then straight into Beccles which is more suitable I’ve posted photos for others attempting this walk

May 2019. Lovely route. Part closed so it’s not a full loop. Still can be done.

Dalham lies nestled in rolling countryside between Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds. The village is full of character with thatched cottages reflecting their original uses - a forge, a carpenter and laundry - and which retains an old malt kiln and windmill. Nearby woods are carpeted with bluebells and wood anemones in spring and the different walks around Dalham pass several historic buildings, including Dalham Hall., Dalham Church and Old Desning Barn. The walk starts at the Affleck Arms, the village pub (open all day on weekends and evenings mid-week). There is free parking available at the Dalham Village Hall on The Street. The walk takes around 2 hours to complete, with plenty of opportunities to take in the surrounds or rest en-route. Part of this walk takes you diagonally through a working field, and you will also journey through Leipsic Wood, an ancient woodland full of oaks, beech and elms. This is one of a number of circular walks around Dalham.

Good trails, lots of public footpaths for route extensions.

very easy and pleasant trail for a relaxing walk in the countryside, in my case just half an hour drive away from Cambridge. Multiple footpaths available, not crowded. There's a pub which is a plus if you want a refreshment at the end.

the bridge across the river is shut now for safety. you'll have to go around

This a a short, enjoyable walk, suitable for dogs on a leash. It can get muddy in parts, so wellies in the winter are a good idea.

Lovely walk, nothing too strenuous. Saw a herd of deer numbering around 30, giant stag in the middle it was spectacular as we got very close. Had a decent pint at the Bull in Borough Green.

A perfect mix of forest, beach, heath and marsh. Lovely.
