Lovely long walk for the dog. Be aware that there is often grazing stock in the fields and if there is then your dog should be kept on the lead.

We enjoyed a delightful 4 mile walk through this part of the Great Stour Way on a bright afternoon. How nice to see a countryside river walk so well used by walkers, runners and cyclists. The river and flood plain contain plenty of wildlife, with an abundance of birds to hear and see. Would recommend to anyone keen on a... More

A short walk through the Westgate Gardens and beyond the children's playground is the start of a path along the Great Stour river that takes you to Hambrook Marshes and an environment that feels miles away from the crowds of the city centre. This natural wetland is a great place to stroll, jog or cycle and just enjoy the scenery... More
