Thornham Walks (Suffolk)

This is a new one for me – writing about a walk I haven’t been on! I have been desperate to get down here for ages but haven’t been able to, so my lovely friend Laura has ‘audited’ it for me as it’s bursting with snowdrops in the spring and I wanted to share it with you all. That’s her cute kid in the photo, not mine! It looks absolutely brilliant and I can’t wait to get down there and explore.

ENJOY! (and cheers Laura!)
