Hugh Turner`s Collection of Local Walks
Thank you for you interest in my selection
of walks and trails, they have been written to meet the needs of Bures
residents to wish to walk or cycle from home as their daily permitted
exercise outing during Coronavirus restrictions.
The walking routes may include sections of road, byway, and bridleway, but all are based mainly on footpaths, on which cycling or horse-riding is not permitted, so please only follow the walking routes on foot. I have provided at least one 10k cycle trail suggestion, and maybe more later.
Please also be aware of others who may wish to walk (or run) faster than you. If someone seems to be catching you up, please wait in the next appropriate space and let them pass. If people are approaching from the other direction, keep as far to one side of the path as you can so they can pass on the other. Stopping to pass the time of day is probably fine, but at a sensible distance!
Do be aware that any surface may harbour the virus, so try not to touch gates, stiles, hand-rails, benches etc. with your bare hands. Either wear gloves, or use your covered forearm. If you do have to touch such surfaces with your hands be sure to wash them thoroughly as soon as you return home.
It now appears that pets can become infected with the virus, so avoid petting other people's animals, and, if you are walking a dog, be sure to keep your pet under close control so that it cannot approach other walkers. Thank you
I prefer paper maps and find this one really
useful for local walking: OS Explorer 196 Sudbury, Hadleigh
& Dedham Vale, but OS maps can also be downloaded as a phone app.
