The Stour Valley Path is 25 years old!

Kissing gat near Glemsford (Dedham Vale AONB)
Like CJS, 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Stour Valley Path, a long distance walking route that stretches over 60 miles (97km), through Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex. 

To mark the 25th anniversary, two main initiatives are being launched. Improvements to the quality of the footpath. More waymarker posts along with additional waymarker discs to have clear directions and help walkers feel more secure on their journey. Secondly, an initiative titled the “Stour Valley Path Passport” has been launched this summer. Walkers can download the free Passport, and use it to collect stamps from participating locations, whether that be a church, tea-room, or pub.
