Stour and Orwell Walk

67 km / 42 miles

Suffolk
The walk is an extension west from Felixstowe to the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Path and follows the coast and heaths along the estuaries of the Orwell and the Stour, going around the Shotley peninsula to Cattawade, providing links with the Essex Way (at Manningtree, across the river) and the Stour Valley Path (East Anglia) (at Cattawade).

On OS mapping, Landranger maps show the Stour and Orwell Path combined while Explorer maps name them both.
