The Fynn Valley Walk traverses some of the most picturesque countryside in East Anglia. The view from the National Trust’s property at Kyson Hill is outstanding and should not be missed.

Although Westerfield station is not directly on the Fynn Valley or Fonnereau Walks, there are connecting paths to both.

Route finding - key points (numbers refer to points on the route diagrams)

  1. From Westerfield level crossing go past ‘The Railway’ public house for 300 yards.
  2. Turn right on path by hedge.
  3. Turn right on ‘Fonnereau Way’ to railway stiles, Broad Acres and Lower Road.
  4. Turn right into Sandy Lane, just beyond the roadway to the water works.
  5. At top of the rise branch to the right.
  6. At the ‘Fountain’ public house turn into Fynn Lane, then right through a kissing gate. Follow the waymarked ‘Fynn Valley Walk’ on to Woodbridge, but note the following:
  7. Path branches left from more obvious driveway ahead.
  8. Look carefully for the path branching left from road - it's easily missed!
  9. Head just to the left of the solitary oak.
  10. Decide either to follow the path by Kyson Point (low tide only) or the Broom Heath alternative (beware traffic where road passes under railway arch).
