Description

(D/A) Start on Walberswick village green facing Ferry Road. Turn left and then left again onto the road at the top (N end) of the village green (Leverett’s Lane). Take the second track to your right, signed ‘Bridleway’. Follow this track and bear right onto a footpath when you reach the ‘Footpath’ sign.

(1) Follow this path across Walberswick Common and bear right again down a track (Palmer’s Lane) when you reach another ‘Footpath’ sign. Bear right at the next ‘Footpath’ sign and head down towards the river and Southwold, following the route of the former Southwold Light Railway. Look out for the disused windmill across the reedbed.

(2) Cross over the Bailey bridge and turn right, keeping the River Blyth on your right. Go past the boat yards, chandleries and fisherman’s sheds of the Harbour and cross over the river on the foot ferry to bring you back into Walberswick.
When the ferry is not running, it’s possible to do a similar walk by keeping to the Walberswick side of the River Blyth instead of crossing the River on the Bailey Bridge.

(3) On leaving the Ferry, turn left. You soon reach Ferry Road which runs between the two car parking areas. Keep walking along Ferry Road which takes you back into the village.(D/A)
