Date 7th December
Wednesday B morning walk – 10.00
Assuming travel is along the A1307 via Linton, carry on towards Haverhill and on the outskirts, follow the signs towards the town centre. After the second roundabout and appropriately 400m further on there is a mini-roundabout with a B&Q sign on the right. Turn right here (Park Road, though no sign indicating this). Go straight over the next mini-roundabout and carry on to the end of this no-through road and park here. The West Suffolk College grounds will be on your right.
The post code is CB9 9EW and its map reference TL659459
Haverhill is full of pleasant surprises for those who care to explore the town and this walk is an attempt to take in a few of them. It starts by descending down to and crossing the main road, followed by a climb up towards the northerly water tower to the west of Little Wratting, although the majority of the walk lies within the town itself on good walking surfaces, including sections of the old Cambridge to Haverhill railway. Some other parts of the walk will be muddy, so come prepared. A stick would be useful.
Mileage: Nominally 6 miles
