Starting fromCattawade
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.'
