A circular walk starting in Woodbridge taking in the estuary of the River Deben, Martlesham Creek and then returning to the town itself. Woodbridge has been a centre for boat building and rope making since the middle ages and has many interesting buildings. Sir Francis Drake is said to have had ships built in Woodbridge. The working Tide Mill is only one of two in the UK and was first recorded in 1170 when it was operated by Augustinian Canons. Water fowl and swifts can be seen along the estuary. The walk is best done at low water given that part of the walk is along the foreshore and can be flooded during spring tides. There are no stiles but two fairly lengthy sets of steps and some narrow pathways would make it difficult for pushchairs. Approx walk time 2 hours
