Dullingham walk 1
- It is possible to park in the passing place on the right just before Rising Sun Cottage.
- This used to be one of the two Public Houses in Dullingham Ley. Proceed south east up Dullingham Ley, past Rosyground Stud. You may see thoroughbred mares or young stock out in the paddocks (image 1).
- Continue along the Ley and round a right and left hand bend, up the next hill then just before the passing place on the left, turn left and follow the path down through the trees (image 2 & 3).
- You will regularly see deer and badger footprints. Follow the path until you exit over a bridge onto a wide grass track (image 4 & 5).
- Take this track heading towards the wood (Ten Wood) the when reaching the wood, turn left (image 6).
- You have now joined the Stour Valley Path.
- This path runs for approximately 64 miles from near Manningtree on the Suffolk/Essex border to Newmarket, including a section over the Devil’s Dyke.
- At the edge of the wood, turn right then immediately left (signposted).
- Continue up the side of the field for approximately 200 metres to the bridge.
- Cross the bridge and follow the path.
- It is a little like walking through a tunnel in places but at any time in this area you are likely to see deer, including a pure white one, foxes and an assortment of wild birds, including Green Woodpeckers (image 7).
- You will eventually come to the end of Basefield Wood and a Footpath which goes off to your right towards Stetchworth Ley.
- 75 yards after this turn left and follow the Footpath down between the paddocks.
- Cross the internal stud road and continue along, crossing another footbridge and you will come out on the Ley where you started.
