pub walk

A pub walk from the Maybush Inn in Waldringfield, Suffolk. The Maybush was originally a 14th century farmhouse, and today is a great Adnams pub with panoramic views across the river and beyond. The walking route combines two elements, meaning the walk can be shortened if you wish to complete just one of these elements. The first part is a there and back walk down through the salt marshes to reach Early Creek, whilst the second part follows a circular route through the village and surrounding arable land. There are great views throughout and plenty of opportunity to enjoy the birds within the estuary. The walk follows unmade paths, all of which can be fairly muddy. The first section follows an embankment path out through the salt marshes at the edge of the river estuary. It is best to walk around low tide and, as the path is subject to erosion/flooding, only walk as far as it is safe to do so. Be careful as the path is uneven and take care with children and dogs to ensure they don't wander onto the dangerous mud flats. The second part includes one section of roadside walking along a quiet lane so take care of any traffic at this point. There are no gates or stiles on route, and the gradients are all very steady. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.
