Long Melford is rightly named with its long main street where we enjoyed (in more sunshine!) the interesting Georgian facades, Victorian terraces, antique shops and art galleries. The walk then continued into the countryside with the river in view before then following the track of an old railway line into the outskirts of Sudbury before arriving at the Mill Hotel, situated on the banks of the river, for lunch. With a wedding taking place it didn’t seem the staff were too interested in a group of ramblers so, suitably unimpressed, we then walked across the beautiful water meadows known as Sudbury Common Lands where cattle have grazed for over 900 years. The afternoon continued away from the river again and on to finish at the village of Lamarsh with its church with another round tower.
