Lavenham to Long Melford Railway Walk

$article->leadphoto->description

September and October can be ideal months for exploring the Suffolk countryside on foot. The National Trust have recently published a self-guided walk from Lavenham to Long Melford which largely following the route of the old GER Lavenham to Long Melford railway line passing through woodland and open fields along the way.


Lavenham is widely recognised as one of the best example of a medieval wool town in England and has 320 listed timber-framed buildings. It also has a very good selection of excellent restaurants and pubs plus some very interesting antique shops.


Long Melford is maybe best known for it’s association with the TV series ‘Lovejoy’ and as expected is a source of several antique shops to browse around. A recent poll to find the best places to live in Britain by a top estate agent saw Long Melford finish in the top ten. Another claim to fame is that it’s main street is the longest in Britain at 2.5 miles so you may need to stop for refreshments along the way! As in Lavenham you’ll be spoilt for choice.


So pack your camera & binoculars and get all your walk details here: National Trust Walks
