Sunday C Walk, Devil’s Dyke, Newmarket
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Walk length 5.5 miles. We will depart from the July Racecourse grounds at 10.00. To get there, take the A1303 or A1304 to Newmarket. At large roundabout with statue of man with rearing horse, take exit marked ‘July Racecourse’ and ‘National Stud’. Follow this road a short way round until you come to a cul-de-sac with plenty of parking space. Grid reference: Landranger 154, 617614.
The walk begins by heading south-east along the Devil’s Dyke. We then drop down and take a short but unavoidable route along a busy road before turning into a quiet farm track and on to join the pleasantly wooded Stour Valley Way. Continuing in this direction, we rejoin the Devil’s Dyke and return by a mostly different route to the start of the walk. N.B. Some sections of the Dyke path contain a lot of exposed or half-hidden tree roots, so care is needed when walking. There are also one or two moderately steep steps. Some sections of the path are slippery and there are lots of nettles at the start/end of the walk. Trousers recommended.
