Eye has been designated the first Walkers are Welcome (WaW) area in north Suffolk.
The market town joins fellow Suffolk WaW hotspots Clare and Shortley, which were both accredited last year.
Walkers are Welcome, a national initiative which now has over 100 member towns, helps its members to provide information on local walks, increase participation, and ensure that footpaths and facilities are well maintained.
The scheme in Eye will officially launch at the Suffolk Walking Festival, running from May 12 to June 3.
A spokesperson for Eye Town Council said they are “delighted” that the town has received the title.
