Suffolk Walking Festival 2022 – Walk the Centuries with Stowmarket Bells

This is a short guided walk round the centre of Stowmarket themed on the town’s church bells which have been recently overhauled and enhanced. It will interest those who want to know more about the town’s heritage and is also suitable for wheelchair users and the less mobile. Starting at and returning to the church, various locations will be visited at which the bells have played a significant role over the centuries. At each location historic events will be recalled and the part played by the bells will be explained. Costumed characters may also make an appearance. Instructions for an optional self-guided extension will be given at the end of the walk.

The walk is free but nonetheless needs to be booked as there will be a maximum of twenty places for each walk.
