Suffolk’s highest point: Sunday 20th August

A small group recently ‘conquered’ the summit of Suffolk’s highest point.

Our ten-mile circular route began at Denston village hall in West Suffolk. Red Kites flew overhead as we walked in the gently rolling countryside. We soon reached our destination at a ‘towering’ 128 meters above sea level. Two different points claim to be the highest – so we went to both of them just to be sure.

Our lunch stop was in the village of Hawkedon. The excellent Queen’s Head pub provided welcome refreshment and wonderful views over the fields and hills. We walked back through the village of Stansfield with its impressive church.

A good day, in good company. Thanks to those who joined us.
