Distance: 17 miles

We cross typical Suffolk heathland to the ancient village of Boyton. We rejoin the coast soon after, following firstly the Ore estuary, before our final destination of Bawdsey Ferry.

There are two official meeting locations per day, one is at the start and the other is near the walk mid-point.

If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and walk along with the walking party as it comes through your section, please confirm this with the Project Coordinator who will be sending all walkers some detailed emails in the next few weeks. If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please email

Mile Marker Map

Start points of walks are shown with bouncing markers. Click a marker to reveal what mile number it is and what day of the walk it occurs on.


 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too. If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is available. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.

Select your mile!

Find the mile number of the mile you want by clicking the map markers above. The mile numbers are revealed in the marker info-windows. Use the mile number to reserve it on the form below.

As soon as a mile is booked it is removed as a choice and no-one else can book it. So if the number you want isn’t there, it has already been taken. There are plenty to choose from, so look for another nearby. After completing the form you will receive a welcome email confirming your selection.

Everyone who books a mile receives a reserved place on the walk. If you can’t attend the walk there is a place on the form to let us know.

If you have questions, please check our FAQs first.
