I have wanted to visit Lt Waldingfield ever seen I saw some comments on some photos I took of Gt Waldingfield by Simon_K on flickr. In his view Lt Waldingfield's St Lawrence church is a lot more interesting and you can in time read in depth reviews at Simons site which includes well over 500 churches in Suffolk http://www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/.

Lt Waldingfield is about 4-5 miles from Sudbury. I took the straight roman road between Newton and Sudbury to Gt Waldingfield and continuing on the B1115 you reach Lt Waldingfield. I parked near the church like its near neighbour it is also called St Lawrence.

I set of for my run through the village past The Swan Public House and picked up a good field path this took me really to a dead end as I arrived out on the busy Lavenham Rd so I had no choice but to retrace my steps back to the village.

I ran along the B1115 before picking up a path which took through Hole farm rather than continue into Gt Waldingfield I again returned back to Lt Waldingfield and took another path out to Archers Farm. The weather appeared threatening and I imagined I would get a soaking but although the sky turned dark I escaped any rain.

    I was interested to read your reference to Hole Farm. My ancestors apparently lived there and migrated to Australia in 1850's. I visited Hole Farm a few years ago but there was no-one at home. I really must get around to contacting the owners again to find out more about the history of the place.
