On 23 January 2014, The East Anglian Daily Times featured an article titled "My Favourite Things in Suffolk". In keeping with the EADT’s #50ThingsinSuffolk theme, Becky Lim from Suffolk Secrets details one of her favourite days out on the Suffolk Coast:
I have lived in many places in the world, but nowhere seems to beat the tranquillity, natural beauty and spaciousness present on the Suffolk coast.One of my favourite things to do on a crisp and sunny winter’s morning is to follow the Suffolk Coastal Path from Walberswick to Dunwich – former Anglo-Saxon capital of East Anglia.
The scenery en route never fails to take my breath away and it’s no wonder that this part of the Suffolk coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
My partner Richard and I like to take the circular route which passes reed beds, an old wind pump and a national nature reserve before looping back along the beach to Walberswick. If we time it right, we usually get to The Bell Inn just in time for Sunday lunch.
If you haven’t yet discovered the tranquillity of walking along this stretch of coast, I thoroughly recommend it and rate it as one of the best antidotes to a busy, modern life!
