TL8061 : The Chevington Way

taken 9 years ago, near to Little Saxham, Suffolk, Great Britain

The Chevington Way
The Chevington Way
The Chevington Way was once a drovers' route from outlying Suffolk villages to the market town of Bury St Edmunds. At this point it follows the valley of the River Linnet. The route was abandoned in the 1820s when the Marquis of Bristol, owner of the Ickworth Estate, threw up a dam across the valley to form a large lake, thereby preventing access. The track is now used by leisure walkers, as part of the circumnavigation of the National Trust estate. A heavy tractor has recently used the route, imprinting its tyre tracks on the verge.
