The Brecks has something for everyone: outdoor activities, heritage attractions, delicious local food and drink and great places to stay. It is also is a distinct geographical area.
The Brecks Trail is a project led by Suffolk County Council aimed at promoting tourism whilst protecting environmentally sensitive sites. It involves the creation and promotion of a long distance trail for cycling, walking and horse riding through the BNG project area. The trail will be designed to manage visitor flows between and towards tourist destinations, key sites of interest and lesser known locations.
The Brecks Trail will be a 15.5 mile (25km) long-distance linear trail (south to north), between West Stow and Santon Downham, utilising existing public rights of way.
The project will comprise of developing a hand-held guide “The Brecks Rides” to promote the route with waymarkers on the ground, and distance signage between key destinations to indicate the route to users.
The route between West Stow Country Park and Brandon Country Park has been finalised.
Work on the leaflet is progressing with research currently taking place on historical and factual information, places to go and things to see.
