St Botolph's Way is a 10 mile circular walk around the public footpaths of Rickinghall and Botesdale. Although the walk covers approximately 10 miles, it can be walked in two parts. The Botesdale section covers 6 miles and the Rickinghall section 5 miles.
This walk was first proposed by the late Ron Coxford, when he was the founder-chairman of the Rickinghall Ramblers.
The documentation and publication of St Botolph's Way was carried out in 2004, as a joint venture by the Parish Councils of Rickinghall and Botesdale with the support of the
Rickinghall Ramblers. Assistance in funding was provided by the Suffolk County Council.
Parking in the two villages is restricted and visitors travelling by car are advised to park at the Rickinghall Village Hall car park.
St. Botolph's Way is well signed and walkers can negotiate it by following the distinctive purple markers. A leaflet describing the walk can be obtained from the Rickinghall Post Office/Newsagents. Copies of the leaflet are also available from the Tourist Office, Diss or can be downloaded from this website.
