Stylised nightjar logoSandlings Walk

Suffolk

89 km / 55 miles
The route encompasses lowland habitats using riverside, forest and heathland paths. It passes through Martlesham Heath, Woodbridge, Rendlesham Forest, Snape and Sizewell. It has 11 sculptures scattered along the route.

At its start at Southwold, it connects with the Suffolk Coast Path that continues north up the coast to Lowestoft.

The Sandlings Walk takes a route generally inland from the Suffolk Coast Path that runs broadly parallel, particularly south of Snape towards Ipswich where the Sandlings route snakes across the inland heaths and forests, while the Path returns to the coast. Between Snape and Southwold the two routes meet and cross several times. Near Dunwich both routes skirt the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve (link below), the Path here going along the coast and the Walk inland. These intersections provide for a number of circular options for shorter walks.

The Cicerone guide is a guide to the trails of the Suffolk coast. Walkers of the paths on and near the Suffolk Coast will find the book by Peter Caton full of interest. While not written as a guide to specific LDPs - there are three in this area - it combines travel writing with a walking guide. The 2015 book, 'Suffolk Coast Walk' provides a insights into this fascinating county and is the companion book to Essex Coast Walk by the same author. Caton explores all 162 miles of Suffolk's unique coastline, including the inlets, creeks, rivers and estuaries, sandy beaches and huge expanses of shingle, through nature reserves, seaside resorts and tiny villages. Caton considers the stories behind legends of Anne Boleyn, invading Germans, a half-man half-fish character, UFOs, Crazy Mary and bells tolling beneath the sea. He visits Suffolk's only island and takes a boat trip to investigate the secret world of Orford Ness. Colour and black & white photos illustrate the book along with maps. It will be useful background also for the Suffolk Coast Path, Stour and Orwell Walk and the Sandlings Walk.
