The Stour & Orwell Walk


The inland route at Levington is no longer waymarked as part of the Stour and Orwell Walk.

Levington Creek – opposite Levington Church. The river wall was breached in December 2013 but has been repaired.

The Orwell Bridge

When the footpath over the Orwell Bridge is closed (for example when bridge maintenance work is being carried out), the alternative route is to follow the Ipswich ‘Loop’ as shown on the Ordnance Survey Explorer Map 197, Ipswich Felixstowe & Harwich. The distance for the Orwell Bridge crossing is just over one mile, the Ipswich ‘Loop’ is six miles.


The route of the Stour & Orwell Walk for the first half mile west from Stutton Ness now follows the public footpath along the beach. This can be subject to flooding for a short period of time at high tide. It is advisable to check tide tables before walking this section
