The 12 miles of waymarked footpaths on the Thornham Estate are known as Thornham Walks and a surfaced path, suitable for push chairs and wheel chairs, leads for half a mile to the Thornham Walled Garden and takes the walker past the newly refurbished bird hide, the pets’ cemetery, along the Thornham Rock Trail to the Victorian Folly. For lots of images of the site and all the activities on offer, please visit the Thornham Walks Facebook page.
Walks maps (£1) are available from the information board in the main car park. An events leaflet is available from the Thornham Walks’ office, or the Thornham Walks website, which gives a list of the extensive programme of activities organised at Thornham Walks.
The staff at Thornham Walks are available to lead and organise guided walks and environmental activities for groups and they run very popular environmental birthday parties.
Volunteers are always welcome to help with practical work and events. The last Sunday of the month is Volunteer Day, offering the opportunity to meet new people and learn different skills.
Thornham Walks are managed by Mid Suffolk District Council and are grateful for the support provided by them and Suffolk County Council.
