Gipping Valley walks – two leaflets published by the River Gipping Trust
The footpath beside the River Gipping is based mainly on the old towing path used by the barge men and their horses. It was adopted by Suffolk County Council in the 1970’s and became an official Long Distance path. The Council is responsible for maintaining the path so it can be used throughout the year by walkers.
It sometimes happens that during the summer months in particular the path becomes somewhat overgrown. Any problems of this nature should be reported to the Council using this web page.
A web site called My Corner of Suffolk has many articles about walks and places of interest in Suffolk. The auther has recently published a piece called the River Gipping Trail about his walk from Ipswich to Needham Market alongside the river. Read it here and then have a look at all the other interesting places in Suffolk.
The Trust has published two walk leaflets which follow the route of the Stowmarket Navigation, now known as the Gipping Valley River Path. If you would like us to post them to you, please use the Contact us link
