A linear walk from Oulton Broad to Ness Point in Lowestoft, the most easterly point in Britain. The route runs between two rail stations, meaning the return leg can be completed by a simple 6 minute train journey. The walk takes in the waterside park at Oulton Broad, the shipyards alongside Lake Lothing, a long stretch of a former railway line and then the parks and sea wall in Lowestoft. The walk is relatively flat for the most part, with just a few slopes as you approach the coast. Almost all of the route follows tarmac paths and pavements, with just a short stretch across the grass within Nicholas Everitt Park near the start. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate several flights of steps and a few staggered barriers. The stretch along the sea wall at the end of the route is very exposed so do not attempt the walk in adverse weather. There are public toilets in Nicholas Everitt Park (near the start) and at Lowestoft Station (at the end). There are plenty of places to eat within Lowestoft and Oulton Broad. Allow 2.5 hours.
