This is a pleasant walk on the Suffolk coast. Starting from Westleton, you head along a path overlooking the marshes before cutting through them to the beach. A stroll along the shingle takes you to Dunwich. It's an interesting place; what was once a thriving port city in ancient times is now a few houses and a pub. Much of the town fell into the sea as the coastline retreated due to erosion. The final stretch takes you through the beautiful Dunwich Heath, a haven for wildlife and stunning in summer and autumn when the purple heather and yellow gorse are in bloom.
To rate the walk, simply move your mouse over the stars to the left and click when it indicates how you like the walk.
The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
