The changing view

[Woodbridge from Ferry Cliff]

Distance: 10.8 miles
Ascent: 152 metres
Duration: 3 hours 31 minutes

Walk 26: Sutton Hoo, Shottisham and the River Deben

I've been putting this walk off. Last time I was here, Nettle Hill nearly defeated me. This time I was prepared, but in the two years since that previous walk things have changed. The stinging nettles are still there - thriving by the side of the river - but a wide path has been cut through them, providing a rather enjoyable walk.

Further on was the moment I was looking forward to. Beneath a huge oak tree I ate my lunch while enjoying my favourite view of my home town.

Even here the scenery is changing. While previously I would have had the place to myself, today I was met by an ex-army vehicle full of tourists. "Photographs, anyone?" the driver asked as he pulled up alongside me. Time to go.
