St Edmund Way

The St Edmund Way is a stunning long distance walk across the length of Suffolk from Manningtree (technically just over the border in Essex) in the south, to Brandon in the Brecks to the north of the county.

The route follows parts of the Stour Valley Path, the Lark Valley Path and the Icknield Way, and showcases some of Suffolk’s gently rolling farmland and beautiful river valleys. It also takes in some of the county’s most fascinating and historic towns and villages including Bury St Edmunds itself, the final resting place and namesake of the martyr King Edmund.
