Overview

'The valley retains a locally characteristic, rural landscape with a rich diversity of wildlife and habitats. In the AONB, key landscape features have been retained and Constable’s views are still largely apparent. The majority of the land in the valley is still farmed despite development pressures, and supports a viable and diverse agriculture with a mix of farm sizes ... The designated area of the AONB is just 90 kilometres square and stretches upstream from Manningtree to within one mile of Bures. The remainder of the Stour Valley landscape is mostly of as high a quality as that within the AONB designation, and representations to extend the AONB continue.'

Overview

'Leave your car behind and take in the countryside at the pace that Constable did himself. You can visit the locations Constable painted and the places he lived or just enjoy strolling though this fine example of an English lowland landscape.'

Distance (miles)39
Overview

'On the Suffolk/Essex border along the estuaries of the Rivers Stour and Orwell to Felixstowe, where it continues as the Suffolk Coast Path, though as all the waters it traces are tidal and Cattawade is pretty much on the Suffolk/Essex border, this route may be considered as the first chunk of a Greater Suffolk Coast walk.'
