We walked a section of the newly planned Stour Valley Benefice: Clare, Stoke-by-Clare, Wixoe, Hundon, Poslingford, Cavendish, Clare on 16th September.  Over time we will map and describe the whole walk and add to our list of walks.  The Walks Group has decided to create a Wool Towns walk (Clare, Long Melford, Lavenham, Hadleigh & Sudbury) – this again will be mapped and described – watch this space!

All of these walks & tours may be seen on Suffolk’s Year of Walking (there’s still a couple of events to take part in this year) along with many from across the county.

Throughout the year  there is a wide range of Health Walks across the whole of Suffolk.  The website includes links to walks arranged by region as well as for the Stepping Out programme:  all designed to keep people active.

Ramblers have local walking events throughout the UKThe Ramblers have walks in our area, organised by local groups and sometimes from further afield.  One way to see what is on offer is to visit the Ramblers site: here you will find a map of what’s on within 10 miles of Clare.  You can pick your own location and calendar.
