SOME LOCAL WALKS

Because we’re surrounded on three sides by Wildlife Trust fen there are great walks on the doorstep. 


Here are three suggestions:


1)  WALK TO REDGRAVE AND THE CROSS KEYS PUB    (45 Mins)

Not the quickest way (down Redgrave Road) but more peaceful.

2)  THELNETHEM FEN and BLO NORTON    (1 hour 30 mins) 

This goes through the spectacular wildlife preserve bordering the Waverney River and past St Andrew’s, the parish church of Blo Norton, where Frederick Duleep Singh is buried. The prince was a remarkable occupant of Blo Norton Hall.

3)  REDGRAVE PARK and LAKE    (3 hours)

4)  THE DULEEP SINGH SELF-GUIDED WALK   (30 mins)


H.H. Prince Frederick Duleep Singh (1858-1926), was the son of the Maharajah of the Sikh Empire & settled in Blo Norton Hall for the last 20 years of his life, giving much to the local community.

5) LOPHAM FEN AND REDGRAVE  (3 hours)


This circular walk goes through the Redgrave and Lopham Fens, in which the Fen landscape is beautifully contrasted with the undulating farmland to the south, with wide views and some fine old hedges.
