Encouraged by the walks in the Dales I'm back to my goal of completing the book of Suffok Walks. Today starts with a train ride two stops to the north.

[St Peter's Church, Carlton]

Distance: 7.85 miles
Ascent: 145 metres
Duration: 1 hour 59 minutes

Walk 17: Saxmundham, Kelsale and the Gull Stream

How long have I lived here? How can I not have taken the train north before? It was a wonderful introduction: past the reed beds and into the open country.

Today's walk was all about the churches. St Peters in Carlton is set in the middle of lush fields, the young crop eagerly reaching toward the sky. Later, St Mary and St Peter in Kelsale offered another chance to linger and appreciate stillness.

After a busy week it's been good to get out into the Suffolk countryside. I may feel out on a limb here, but it's home.
