Today saw us back here after leaving the clock tower on 23/06/2014. After doing The Stour Valley Path, Stour and Orwell Walk, Suffolk Coastal Path, Angles Way, part of the Icknield Way Trail and local paths from Herringswell to Newmarket, we have completed the circumnavigation of Suffolk! Walking roughly 10 miles every Monday from late Spring to early Autumn during those 2 years we accomplished 260 miles, 120 parishes and 113 bench marks.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

What a beauty.Fantastic architecture as well.This clock tower is a masterpiece with the added factor of an FB.What a shame that the motorists driving by do not have time to take in the view.Watchout for the new road layout from the new Waitrose superstore....
