Lavenham and the Stour Valley (OC-124)

Lavenham, Suffolk, England

Easy - New

Starting in Kersey, one of the most scenic villages Suffolk has to offer and often regarded as a hidden gem with quintessential medieval timber-framed houses and a ford. We head off through more chocolate box villages with pretty thatched cottages, historic churches and picturesque gardens climbing Watson’s Hill (Official UK Climbs #124) before passing through Chelsworth, Monks Eleigh and Brent Eleigh before arriving at the spectacular village of Lavenham. From here we drop into the Stour Valley at Long Melford and follow it through Cavendish to finish the ride at Clare where we have the choice of many pubs or tea shops to call into for refreshments!
