Because we’re surrounded on three sides by nature reserves there are great walks on the doorstep.
Here are various suggestions:
REDGRAVE AND LOPHAM FEN NATIONAL NATURE RESERVE
You can walk from the lodge (10 mins into Little Fen) or bike to its carpark (10 mins to where marked 'P' on map) on Low Common Road.
Prepare for fabulous wild country!
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.
