A guided walk through one of the most picturesque landscapes in England in the company of a local expert on the Southwold Railway. Rediscover what remains of this famous narrow gauge line. Is it true the train was so slow you could gather flowers while it was still moving? Where was Blythburgh Station? How were building challenges overcome? What remains of Walberswick Station? Where did the line cross the Blyth? What remains of the railway in Southwold? What is the China connection? And what plans are there for the railway’s future preservation? All will be revealed, and as a bonus along the way, we’ll hear original anecdotes and poems from local poets (courtesy of the Suffolk Poetry Society) in celebration of the railway.
Meet at Holy Trinity Church car park, Blythburgh IP19 9LP
Total distance 3.5 miles. No refreshments but cafes in Southwold at the end of the walk
