The Association has organised three walks for 2017.
The first walk this year was a real exploration of the Upper Alde passing through meadows, along tracks by arable fields, plunging into spring green woods, crossing the upper Alde River twice, and returning past bluebell woods. The morning ended with a fantastic picnic lunch at White House Farm.
The second walk on 23rd June was more rigourous, walking from Aldeburgh Martello Tower down Orfordness to the Lighthouse and then on to cross the river at Orford. The walk was considerably enhanced by Alison Andrews explaining the near breach at Slaughden and the plans to remedy it, Mike Finney explaining the plans for the Cobra Mist site and opening the Lighthouse and Grant Lohoar of the National Trust giving details of the history and wildlife of the Ness as we walked.
The last walk of the year on 8th September explored the marshes and sandlings around Snape ending with a sandwich lunch at the Plough and Sail pub at Snape Maltings.
We are now planning the walks for 2018. If you have any walks which you would like to do or areas of the estuary which you would like to explore, please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All suggestions gratefully received.
