Sutton Heath

Sutton Heath

Sutton Heath is a patchwork of footpaths and bridleways that pass through avenues and glades of trees. There is a spacious and atmospheric feel to the site during the winter months and a dappled and colourful display during the spring and summer.

Work over the next few years will encourage traditional species, such as oak and chestnut and the wildlife they will bring, will ensure the heath is always worth a return visit.

Sutton Heath also has a fenced dog exercise area, where you can let your dog off-lead.

By foot, the site can be reached by following the long distance path, The Sandlings Walk.

The nearest train station and bus stop is in Melton, next to Woodbridge, which is just over 3 miles (5 km) from the site. Visit for more details.

By car, the site is off the B1083, and there is free car parking.
