In July 2010 & again in September 2010 I went for strolls along parts of the Valley Walk that has been created on the trackbed of the old Stour Valley Line from near the Waitrose carpark in central Sudbury to near Rodbridge Corner in Long Melford.
The July walk was from the Waitrose carpark to Ballingdon Street Bridge,
and in September I went from Ballingdon Bridge as far as the road to Borley Hall.

The photos that I took follow.

The Stour Valley Line originally ran from Marks Tey, on the London to Colchester line, to Shelford, on the London to Cambridge line, via Sudbury and Haverhill. Trains usually ran through to Colchester and Cambridge raher than terminating at the junction station. The section from Sudbury to Shelford was closed in 1967.

The descriptive panel is rather faded now and in need of some attention.
