A Boot Up Constable Country

 
It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britainís countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. 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 riverís 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 ĎConstable Countryí.
