TR River Deben
« on: 18:18:48, 17/05/20 »

Our second venture out in the car after seeing the bluebells on Wednesday. Not heading to the coast yet for obvious reasons, so the river it was. Woodbridge is nearest to us but we knew the river wall would be very busy and itís narrow in places so we did a 6 mile circular walk weíve done many times before around 3 villages close to the river Deben. We started in Newbourne, famous ( around here anyway) for itís greenhouses and small holdings created before the war by the Land Settlement Association. We headed off the other way to normal as we thought Waldringfield might get a bit busy being right on the river.


We headed out of Newbourne across fields and through woodland. I was surprised to see poppies already.




The first time weíve seen such an expanse of water in many weeks! Not as many people around in Waldringfield as we expected, maybe because the pub is closed! (Though it was only 10.30). A few canoes and one or two boats out. Maybe people havenít been able to get their boats back in the water yet.



We then walked along the river slightly inland but still with a view, to Hemley, a hamlet with only a handful of houses. Thereís a grassy parking area opposite the church and I donít think Iíve ever seen more than 2or 3 cars there, often none, today there were 11! Everyone must have thought it more remote so less busy! Luckily we didnít pass too many people. We saw these little black lambs.



The path heads out around Kirton Creek and then back into Hemley, crossing the path we were on before. Across the river is the Ramsholt Arms, a great place for a drink/meal on a summerís evening to see the sunset (well not this year I guess).



Back across farmland into Newbourne and past the Fox, only 200 yards from the end of the walk, but sadly closed and empty car park so we must wait for a post walk drink  :(

Another lovely, varied walk  :)


I can't believe how we seem to be rattling through spring into summer at a rate of knots  :o
