Suffolk has great churches, full of history.. for local services see Blyth Valley Team Ministry and the Sole Bay Ministry.
We like Wenhaston with its Doom painting and Thorington with its Round Tower.
Blythburgh for its wonderful setting and carved angels on the roof.
Huntingfield with its painted ceiling
Walberswick and Southwold for fine flint work.


There are numerous walks around the village on Blackheath and common land as well as footpaths leading to the Balancing Barn at Thorington, and on to Blythburgh, Southwold and Halesworth. Dogs are welcome to walk too.


South Lowestoft Beach is sandy and is at the eastern most point in the country.
Walk to Pakefield and Kessingland and keep heading south - only a few miles along the Suffolk Coast Path.
Southwold - plenty of sand by the Pier and Gun Hill, excellent cafes by the beach
Dunwich - a more stony beach but plenty of space for walking, swimming and a large car park next to the Flora Tea Rooms well known for fish and chips, there is also The Ship Inn and a museum well worth a visit telling the history of this special place.
Walk up by Dunwich Priory too.
A walk from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh and on to Felixstowe completes the coastal walk!
