Suffolk's riverside meadows of the Stour valley remain as beautiful today as when Constable painted them two centuries ago. Similarly, the county's lonely expanses of estuarine marsh, which are a feature of the coast, have a quality that appeal to writers as well as artists. A walk through Flatford and East Bergholt passes one of Constable's most famous viewpoints, and Flatford Mill itself. There is a choice of coastal walks, including routes through Southwold, Shingle Street, Dingle Marshes, Thorpeness and the Shotley peninsula. With 28 walks through the Suffolk countryside, if you're a walker who really wants to make the most of the Suffolk countryside, make sure you don't set off on your walk without a copy of Pathfinder Guide to Suffolk Walks in your rucksack! Pathfinder(R). Guides are Britain's best loved walking guides. Made with durable covers, they are the perfect companion for countryside walks throughout Britain. Each title features circular walks with easy-to- follow route descriptions, tried and tested by seasoned walkers and accompanied by beautiful photography and clear, large-scale Ordnance Survey mapping.
