Walks around Mendlesham

Welcome to our webpage. 

The 3 main Mendlesham Walks can be viewed by clicking on the links below. The notes include photos, references to the legal definitions of relevant rights of way and comments on issues of access and signage.  We have a direct link with the SCC Rights of Way Officer and there is an ongoing plan for maintaining  signposts and way markers.  If you see any problems with the routes e.g. blockage, overgrown, signposts and waymakers missing or fallen, please contact Judith Howard-Rees or a member of the Parish Council.

In 2016 we were part of the Suffolk Year of Walking and we created an additional walk around the village of Mendlesham, giving some historical facts and stories about village life over the years. If you have any interesting stories about Mendlesham, contact Judith so that they can be added.  (Printed details are not  available but a walk can be arranged).  In 2017 we began selecting interesting walks outside the Parish and have enjoyed going to Needham Market, Hoxne and Wortham. In April we began liaising with the Eye Walking Group and are considering joining the Walkers are Welcome Scheme.

Please do join us on one of the walks. Dogs and Children (with a responsible Human Adult!) are all welcome. You will be asked to read our Information and Disclaimer leaflet when you join us for the first time. Click Here to view in advance.

2017 Walks will take place on:

Saturdays    May 20, June 17, July 08                To be announced: August September October Novmeber December

We leave the Community Centre (where you can park your car) at 10.30am each time and there is an opportunity to enjoy refreshment at the end, either at a local pub or our own Kings Head (you will need to book for soup and sandwiches in advance) or the Internet Café which is open on the first Saturday of the month. If you fancy organising a picnic in your own back garden during the summer months - we would love to attend!

If you are interested in participating in one of the Villager Led Walks or would like to lead a walk yourself, please contact mendleshamwalks@gmail.com or ring Judith on 01449 766327 or just turn up on the day!
