Help connect Bildeston

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bildeston’s Slow Ways.

I would have given the walk 4 stars but for one section between Ash St in Whatfield and Rectory Rd in Semer. The GPX made it very easy to navigate and with the proviso of the overgrown section, I would recommend this walk to others....
