Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds

Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds
Where to start with Abbey Gardens? I know I say it often but yes this is another of my favorite places in Suffolk! I have got to know Abbey Gardens quite well over recent years...or so I thought. I usually meet one of my best friends there several times a year as it happens to be halfway between where we both live. We grab a coffee and sandwich at the bakery and wander down to the gardens, ...

The Suffolk Punch

Suffolk Punch Horse
When I moved to Suffolk, I had lots to learn. Having never visited the county before I remember overhearing someone talking about the 'Suffolk punch' and thinking it was some sort of local boxing term! I soon realised that of course it's not.... the Suffolk Punch is the most wonderful type of horse! The breed was developed for farm work, however as machinery started to take over numbers dec...

Exploring Sutton Hoo

Sutton Hoo
Who would have thought mounds could be so interesting!  Sutton Hoo is set in a wonderful landscape and the mounds are just the start of the story..... On arrival at Sutton Hoo it's easy to get swept up in the excellent 'visitor attraction' facilities before actually venturing outside to see the wonderful landscape where the story begins. It was shortly before the Second World War that Ed...

Debach Airfield Museum

The Operations Room, Debach Airfield Control Tower
It's funny how one of the best days out I have had so far this year is one I stumbled upon by accident! That's exactly what happened at Debach Airfield Museum. On my way to Ipswich I came across an eye-catching sign that made me think.....ooohh I will pop in there on my way back, which is exactly what I did! Not really knowing what to expect, I turned off at the sign and found myself headin...

Situated south of Ipswich in Stutton, the park has so much to offer that you could easily spend a whole day there. Walking from the visitor cent...

Suffolk Walking Festival

Felixstowe and walking festival 049
Sound familiar? You are out and about and see the leaflet for the Suffolk Walking Festival and think...that's a good idea I'll do that and before you know where you are your leaflet has been buried under a pile of paperwork at home and when you find it the Walking Festival is over! Determined to be organised this year I didn't bury the leaflet as I have done in previous years, as soon as I got ...

The sun was shining, it was a beautiful spring day and I had a free weekend so where better to start my Suffolk Top 50 Challenge than Southwold Pier and the seaside!
