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.
