Shotley Peninsula --Submitted by Jeremy Pavier
Starting from Shotley, this walk takes you along the banks of the Stour, with good views of Harwich. Cutting back across rolling farmland to Chelmondiston, you then follow the Orwell downstream, opposite Levington, before cutting back up to Shotley.
A nice combination of countryside and riverside walking, with opportunities for pub stops on the way, the most notable being at Pin Mill. Here you will find the 17th century Butt and Oyster pub with great views over the little boats in the River Orwell.
The walk makes use of the Suffolk Coast Path for part of the way. You could extend your walk by following the long distance path north west from Chelmondiston to the nearby Woolverstone Park.
