pub walk

A circular trail from Orford, Suffolk. With opportunity to visit two Adnams pubs along the way, the Jolly Sailor and the King’s Head, there are lots of options for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route takes in a lovely stretch of the River Alde before turning inland, with an optional arm into the old Sudbourne Estate, and back into Orford with chance to visit the 12th century Orford Castle. The walk has just a few gentle slopes and the riverside/farm paths can be a little muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are no stiles on route, just a few steps and a couple of gates to negotiate. There are a couple of stretches along the village/country lanes so take care of any traffic at these points. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.
