National Walking Month
Date: 10.05.2018
May is National Walking Month which means it’s time to dust off those walking boots and go on an adventure into the great outdoors.

Here on the Suffolk Coast, we are perfectly placed for a range of walking routes of all distances. To celebrate, we have highlighted our favourite walking route.

Sailors Path
If you love wildlife, then we recommend walking the length of Sailors Path to nearby Snape Maltings. The historic, six-mile route connects the village of Snape with the town of Aldeburgh, and forms part of the Suffolk Coastal Path. Historically used by sailors after finding their boats stuck in the low tide at Snape Maltings, they used the pathway to walk back to their homes in Aldeburgh.

Takes in beautiful views of the River Alde and Black Heath wood, as well as picturesque marshland and reed beds as you walk through woodlands and marshland. Be sure to keep an eye out for woodlarks, yellowhammers and, if you’re very lucky, otters!

Stop for lunch and a coffee in one of the many independent cafes in Snape Maltings, home to one of the world’s leading centres of music, founded by Suffolk-born composer Benjamin Britten.

Other highlights include the Alde estuary expanding around wide and wild marshes, and Snape Warren Nature Reserve, a habitat for many birds including the illusive nightjar.

Walking the length of the Sailor’s Path should take between 3 and 4 hours. The paths are well surfaced and newly renovated, high visibility clothing is recommended, as some of the walk is by road.
