Richard Tyson walk, Laxfield/Ubbeston

Richard Tyson discovers the hidden delights of secret Suffolk.

Great Tey

Combine this journey with a visit to the garden centre; you will find a space in their extensive car park and some refreshments on return. In the summer an area with tables and seating is open for leisure activities next to the Colne River. The ramble is an easy route following the travel of the sun to the village of Great Tey, one in a group of villages including Marks Tey. It involves little hard-top walking and the route back from west to east is clearly marked by the Essex Way and other discs. One farm complex, singled out by a large painting of the English flag on a high wall, is undergoing a barn conversion to a private residence – watch this space!
