The Fynn Valley Walk is a 9 mile (15km) long distance footpath that follows the little Fynn River from its source at Witnesham to the point where it joins the River Deben at Woodbridge. It meanders along a stunning valley through some beautiful Suffolk countryside, passing through the villages of Tuddenham St Martin, Playford, Little Bealings and Martlesham before joining the Deben at Kyson’s Point.
Certain parts of the walk can be very muddy depending on the time of year.
In Church Lane there is parking at the village hall, next to St Mary’s church. If you follow this lane to the end there is a ford in the road that is claimed to be the “source” of the this charming river. Just behind the hedgerows is the 16th century Witnesham Hall. A footpath leads back to the main road near to the start car-park on Mow Hill. A walk down the road takes you down to a little bridge across the fledgling Fynn and then back up to a left turn at the wonderfully-named Strugglers Lane.
