A free guided walk through the Suffolk countryside is being held next week to give people the chance to burn off some of those excess calories gained over the Christmas period.
Organised by the East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership, the walk on Wednesday, December 28, will start at Brampton Station and end in the picturesque market town of Halesworth.
The five-mile Wolfpack Walk takes in numerous sites including the modern house at Belle Grove Farm with its roof top metal dragon contrasting with traditional farmsteads nearby. Part of the route also skirts a former Second World War airfield, home to US fighters famed as ‘Zemke’s Wolfpack’ with their memorial to be seen close to the hedgerows.
The walk is free and open to the public, with the ramble set to follow country footpaths, bridleways and tracks.
The walk leaves Brampton Station just after 11.30am following the arrival of Greater Anglia train services, which leave Ipswich at 10.17am and Lowestoft at 11.07am

The walk will be led by Maureen Colledge and David Bays and is expected to take around two and a half hours. Well behaved dogs are also welcome.
It is recommended that you take along your own drink and snack and wear suitable footwear and waterproof clothing as the route could be muddy in places.
