Here are some photos of one of my regular routes which starts near the Water Tower in Bury St Edmunds. The distance is only approximate. Set off down Park Road before turning left left into Cadogan Road and down the hill.

At the junction turn right into Flemying Road which soon becomes Glastonbury Road.
This is a good up hill section to reach Horringer School with the Glad Abbot Pub and one of the better fish and chip shops in Bury.
Some nights particularly on a Friday it can be difficult to run past the fish shop without feeling jealous of those folks arriving for a takeaway haddock and chips.

There is a short down hill section which takes you into Horringer Road where you turn left. There is another long downhill section down to the Spread Eagle and Stamford Court where I turn right up hill along Vinery Road. When you reach the top of the hill the road becomes Hardwick Lane and takes you past the Hospital and Hardwick Heath.

Turn left into Cullum Road and through the water meadows where there seems to be a further piece of development I believe called Saxon Gate. Bit by bit housing seems to be eating into this area of water meadows which is sad. I run along Cullum Road which at this time of day is always busy with cars struggling to exit the town centre.

Up Parkway South turning left at the mini roundabout into Kings Road and then right down Chalk Road. At the bottom of the hill turn left into Risbygate Street and left again up Westley Road returning to the start.
