From Southwold it is possible to walk to Blythburgh church most of the way along a footpath. The path is clearly marked on OS maps, is signed and is easy to follow. It traces the course of the old Southwold railway (Southwold to Halesworth) and parallels the River Blyth through woodland and across heathland. There are beautiful views across the river valley. In only one section does the present path leave the course of the old railway line and briefly follows a section of road. At Blythburgh one has to cross the busy A12 to reach the church, a stunning example of 15C Perp. architecture. It was in a church on this site that Anna, King of East Anglia was interred after his death at the Battle of Bulcamp (nearby). In Anglo-Saxon times, Blythburgh was capital of East Anglia.
