Settlements in this area date back to Roman times, with Icklingham, on the River Lark, being a very important centre.
There are many interesting buildings in both villages, a few fine examples are the Market Cross, market square and St Mary’s Church in Mildenhall; and Lakenheath Church with its fine medieval wall paintings, recently restored.
The Skies above Mildenhall walk is a 5.5 mile that takes you through Mildenhall, up Larks River up to Judes Ferry and back. Takes about 2 hours and if you are lucky enough, the planes will be flying about you.
It is a nice walk on a sunny day along the river. Let the dogs off and get out there. You could stop at Judes Ferry have a pint or lunch and walk back. Our dogs were very happy after our walk and were definitely worn down.
Check out the AA website for details of the walk and a map.
