Event details

This event is now off sale.

The River Lark and its tributary the Linnet are amongst a small number of chalk streams in the world and we will explore their unique ecology.

They were important in the siting and development of Bury St Edmunds and we will consider their influence on this important historical town.

The walk is in three sections:
Section 1 is on hard surface footpaths.
Section 2 is on a field path which may be muddy and includes a set of woodland steps.
Section 3 is an ancient track, part of which is narrow and tarmacked with water on both sides.

It is possible to return to the town centre after Section 1 or after Section 2 if preferred. The walk ends in Westgate Street, two blocks from the town centre.

Please check the weather forecast and wear appropriate footwear and clothing.

Times: Thursday 16 September 2pm-3.30pm, Sunday 19 September 10.30am-12pm
Tickets: This event is free as it is part of Heritage Open Days!
