This tramp around the fields south of Dennington is an easy outing before Sunday lunch in fine weather, and includes a visit to one of the finest Suffolk Churches.
c.5 miles; 2.5 hours
This walk starts in the square in the centre of Dennington, outside the Church and goes down the road towards Framlingham to find a signpost. Be careful here: the path is through the churchyard and the signpost, pointing across the fields, is deceptive.
Framlingham Hall is a 16C building, with later alterations, and three ponds which were probably ornamental rather than part of a moat.
The Church of St Mary in Dennington is 12C-14C and filled with interesting features: triple pulpit, carved pew ends, rood lofts, beautiful tombs, parclose screens.
The tomb of Lord and Lady Bardolf. Sir William Phelip, Lord Bardolf, was a knight who fought with Henry V at Agincourt. Interestingly he took his title from his wife!
