pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Ship Inn in Levington, Suffolk. The Ship Inn is a great cosy inn which probably dates back to the 13th century and still retains some of the ship timbers from which it was built hence the name. The walking route performs a simple loop, heading out along the edge of the Orwell Estuary and then returning through the woodland of the Broke Hall Estate. There are beautiful sections of woodland, teaming with wild flowers every spring plus great views across the River Orwell throughout. There are several steady gradients throughout the walk and many of the paths (particularly the woodland bridleways) can become quite muddy after rain and in winter. There are no stiles on route, just a single kissing gate and a few steps. The last half a mile follows a stretch of a quiet country lane so take care of any traffic here. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
