Gipping Valley River Path
Follow the River Gipping from Stowmarket to Ipswich on this pleasant riverside walk. The path passes Needham Market, Claydon and Sproughton before finishing in Ipswich.
There is a variety of water loving wildlife to look out for on this walk as well as interesting old water mills and locks. Also on the path are Needham Lake and Suffolk Water Park near Claydon. The latter is a particularly nice place to stop for refreshments or to try your hand at fishing.
The route links with the Mid Suffolk Footpath which takes you on a tour of the local villages and countryside.
