Pinford End Woods Suffolk

In Hawstead, Pinford End, suffolk on October 9, 2005 at 3:03 pm

9am 9.5 miles in 1 hour 20 mins 53 secs

Year to date mileage 1003

Month to date 52 miles

Average miles per month 107

Average weekly rate 24.9

Weather: Another beautiful autumn day very mild and perfect for running.

Course: Ran out past the West Suffolk Hospital into Hardwick Park. Then onto Hencote Lane and over the faint track across the fields. The corn has long been cut and the farmer has ploughed and tilled the soil but the shadow outline of the old pathway is easily followed.

Following the Bury to Clare path I passed Hawstead Lodge and then took a path over fields into some woods near Pinford End. The woods don’t seem to be named and the official path ceases before you can reach Hawstead Hall. The marked path on the ordanance survey map has been changed so you can no longer follow the path over fields to Hawstead Church. Instead I returned in a circle passing over some lovely bridges in the wood.

I never saw a soul on the run very quiet and beautiful seclusion.

  1. Congrats on the 1 kilo-mile mark!
