Fifteen people and two dogs joined me on this lovely bright autumn day, starting off from Snape Maltings. We began by following the Suffolk Coast Path, which at this point is quite a way inland in order to bypass and cross the River Alde. We walked along the river as far as Iken Cliffs before the path took as south and then into Tunstall Forest. Before leaving the Forest, we had a quick lunch stop then headed to The Froize at Chillesford for a welcome drink stop.
After restarting the walk, we then headed back towards the Forest and picked up the Sandlings Walk, which eventually took us back to our starting point. Some of us then went to the tea shop in order to reward ourselves for our lovely day’s walk. As most IOG walks centre on either a pub or a tea shop, I am quite pleased that I managed to tick both items off the list!
Thanks to everyone for coming along to make it such a lovely day and the weather gods for granting us with great autumn weather.
