There are four colour coded walks around the Parish. All are along footpaths or bridlepaths, only using roads in the villages. These Notes on the Parish Walks may be useful. The walks will take you into the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, along the Heritage Coast, and through farmland, woodland and heathland, as well as the villages of Aldringham and Thorpeness.
Please print the map to take with you - some of the colour marked footpath signs may have been changed or removed, so you may need to refer to it. Please note that the houses and farms shown are for interest and reference only, and are not open to the public.
Work on the route of the around England coastal path has now been completed in our parish and GPS mapping of the route is being carried out before the details are published for consultation in early summer 2017.
The footpaths and other rights of way used by these walks, and many others in the area, are shown on Ordnance Survey Explorer Map 212, Woodbridge & Saxmundham, and Landranger Map 156, Saxmundham, Aldeburgh & Southwold. There are also a number of locally produced maps showing walks in the parish.
Please remember that the beautiful buildings you see in the Parish are private property. Please respect owners and residents and do not tresspass.
