An easy 3.5 mile walk through the farmland and woodland around Friston, Suffolk. There are no stiles to negotiate and the paths are all unmade so can be quite muddy after wet weather.

Friston is a village just to the east of the A12 in Suffolk. If travelling north on the A12 (from Ipswich A1094 to Snape, Friston and Aldeburgh, take a sharp left on to the B1121 to Friston. Go through the centre of the village then turn right on to Church Road. Turn right into the car park for the church and village hall. Approximate post code IP17 1PU.
