The lowlands

[Dingle Marsh]

Distance: 5.05 miles
Ascent: 84 metres
Duration: 1 hour 19 minutes

Walk 5: Dingle Marshes from Dunwich

Dingle Marsh is at the other end of Suffolk's scale of heights. The land here is under constant threat from the sea and Dingle Great Hill is little more than a bump, rising only twelve metres above the level of the water. This walk circled the marsh, starting out by walking along the sea-front then back on the edge of the forest.

[Crumbling shingle bank]

The shingle bank that separates the sea and the marsh is suffering badly at the moment. The waves have taken great bites out of it recently and it's easy to imagine it being breached this winter.

The walk round the marsh is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours but I wonder how much longer it will be possible.
