Length: 3.6 mi • Est. 1 h 38 m
A circular pub trail in Snape, Suffolk starting and finishing at two great Adnams pubs: The Golden Key and The Crown Inn. With pubs at the start and finish of this circular trail, you get chance to have lunch before your walk and then a drink at the end, or vice versa. The walking route heads out through farmland and across the beautiful heath of Snape Warren to reach the River Alde. There’s also an opportunity to visit the famous Snape Maltings, a lovely collection of shops, galleries and concert hall, before returning to Snape village. The views are beautiful throughout and there is plenty of wildlife to enjoy along the way. The route follows a mixture of pavements/village roads and heath/marsh/field paths, the latter of which can be quite muddy after periods of rain and in winter. The paths can be quite narrow in places but there are no stiles on route, just a couple of kissing gates. There are just a couple of gentle slopes, with most of the route being entirely flat. Snape Warren is grazed by Exmoor Ponies so take care with dogs in this section. There are a couple of sections walking along quiet lanes so take care of any traffic at these points. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.Show more
