April 2017 Walks


Jean and Lorna's walk on Tuesday 11th April.

Departing from Thornham Magna (Four Hourshoes) Car Park we walk for a short distance along quite a busy road before turning up Clay Street. Heading past Billingford Wood we walk for a distance before cutting across field past Dornmans Wood and past Little Swattesfiled Hall. We cut across a main road into the edge of Thornham Walks. We walk round the outskirts of the estate before heading towards Thornham Parva Church. We then head back through the Thornham Walk paths passing the walled garden, some lovely new wooden sculptures and bird hide ending up eventually at the Four Horseshoes Public House, where we shall partake in some refreshments. The walk is just over two hours long and is a very pleasant easy walk, but may be mucky in parts.

Jane H's walk on Tuesday, April 25.
Those wanting to car share will meet us as usual at Palgrave, leaving at 09.45 for the car park of The Four Horseshoes, Stoke Ash, where Jane will meet us.
Our walk will head northwards into Thornham walks where there are toilets.  We then swing through the estate until we walk southwards to Wickham Skeith. After passing the church and The Hall we head north again back to the Four Horseshoes, where we will have refreshments.
The walk may be muddy in places, but I cannot recall any stiles.

    This is a walking group based in Diss organised and led by Janet and David Bryant, (tel: 01379 643263; email david-janet1@tiscali.co.uk) Details of each months walks can be obtained from the Parish Office of St Marys Church, Diss from the 1st of each month or by visiting David's web journal at http://davidabryant.wordpress.com/

Steve will lead this walk which will be a circular one from Weybread, in Suffolk. From the village's round-towered church we'll strike across country, northwards, in the direction of Harleston. As we reach the River Waveney, we'll turn south-west to follow its southern bank along the Angles Way, in the direction of Brockdish. Before reaching Brockdish, we'll turn away from the river, heading up to higher land, for Upper Weybread and Greengate Farm and - eventually - the point we started from. It's varied, attractive terrain with one steep slope, a couple of stiles (one requiring a parachute) and one stretch of glutinous slough, approaching Instead Hall Farm.  The distance is approximately five miles (Steve-miles) and it's a grand walk! There's some parking at the church in Weybread but the pub in the village is unlikely to be open on a Tuesday so we'll go elsewhere - perhaps Brockdish, or Fressingfield.
