LONG DISTANCE PATHS RUNNING THROUGH THE REGION ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN WHITE
 

A Boot Up Constable Country, Alan Casey - These are perfect walks for families. The River Stour gently meanders its way through the rolling Suffolk countryside. This wonderful river flows east from Sipsey Bridge four miles from its source in Cambridgeshire, along 8 miles in Suffolk and forms the county boundary between Suffolk and Essex all the way to Cattawade, its length totalling 68 miles. In earlier times this mighty river was used as a canal with barges drawn by horses along the towpath which ran along all of the river's length. The area has lost little of its romance, and walks in this book start from Bures crossing from Suffolk to Essex walking in the footsteps of John Constable, the famous landscape painter, who gives his name to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, affectionately known as 'Constable Country'.  Published May 14.

Suffolk Coast and Heath Walks, Laurence Mitchell - The Suffolk coastline has some of the most appealing landscape in southern England. Once an important region for England's seafaring tradition, coastal erosion and the silting of ports has ensured that the Suffolk coast languished as a backwater for centuries until the onset of low-scale tourism in the late Victorian period. While the charming, old-fashioned resorts of Southwold and Aldeburgh provide homely facilities and a lively cultural scene, there are many other places along this coastline where crowds are virtually unknown. Much of the Suffolk coastal region is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a unique landscape of cliffs, marshes, dunes and shingle beaches, and rare plants and birdlife galore, there is much to attract anyone seeking interesting day walks or longer multi-day itineraries. The three long-distance walks described in this book - the Suffolk Coast Path, the Stour and Orwell Walk and the Sandlings Walk - link together to provide a comprehensive and varied circuit of the entire Suffolk Heritage Coast. Illustrated with OS maps and colour photographs with lots of historical and other information about points of interest along the routes. Published February 12. K

Suffolk Coast Walk, Boxed Set, Peter Caton - Combining travel writing with a walking guide, Suffolk Coast Walk provides a wonderful insight into this fascinating county and is the companion book to Essex Coast Walk by the same author. Peter Caton explores all 162 miles of Suffolk's unique coastline, describing the route for fellow walkers, with an engaging narrative that tells of the beauty, history and wildlife of this mysterious and varied coast. The reader is taken up and down Suffolk's remote creeks and rivers, past sandy beaches and huge expanses of shingle, through nature reserves, seaside resorts and tiny villages. We learn of the county's abundant wildlife, not just through its famous bird populations but also of equally interesting and less celebrated creatures, and how habitats are managed to balance the needs of nature and mankind. Throughout his journey, Peter uncovers many mysteries and considers the stories behind legends of Anne Boleyn, invading Germans, a half-man half-fish character, UFOs, Crazy Mary and bells tolling beneath the sea. He visits Suffolk's only island and takes a boat trip to investigate the secret world of Orford Ness. More than 100 colour and black & white photos illustrate the story of the walk and the beauty and atmosphere of county's remarkable coast. With maps at the start of each chapter, this is a book for those who enjoy a short stroll, a longer ramble or simply wish to follow the coast from the comfort of an armchair. Published December 14.
