Short Parish Walks

This set of walks follow various public footpaths and bridleways that exist in the open country around Burston and Shimpling. All footpaths are shown on the OS Explorer map 230, although some sections vary slightly to follow field margins rather than any official route across crop fields. This means walkers do not damage crops which helps ensure continued access across our local farmland. None of these walks should take more than one hour to complete. Happy walking.

If you find a problem with any of the walks suggested on this page or any of the footpaths in the Parish please email with the details and we will investigate for you.
