Anyone with a love of the outdoors and local history is invited to join a sponsored walk around the tracks and byways of a Suffolk heritage landmark later this month.

The event is the first of its kind to be organised by the Lions Club of Woodbridge and District, and promises to give fundraisers outstanding views across the Deben from the famous Sutton Hoo burial site.

Participants will get the chance to walk either six or three-and-a-half miles in the footsteps of ancient settlers on Sunday, September 28, while raising money for local causes.

Woodbridge Lion Ian Gander said: “Apart from it being a great day out, we hope it will help raise plenty of funding.”

The dog-friendly walk starts at 9.30am from the National Trust car park.

You can register online at woodbridgelions.org.uk before September 21.

Entry is £6 for adults and £3 for children, or £8 for adults and £5 for children on the day.
