A circular run around Adkins Wood at Ickwo
rth Park. This run takes me from Gainsborough field up via a pathway through Great Horringer Hall farm besides Westley Lane. Eventually you have to run on the road and this is ok although you have to watch for traffic on the bends.

Once you are in Horringer head into Ickworth park and immediately turn left over a stile and into Adkins Wood. This is a long strip of woodland which runs alongside the Chevington Road. There are good pathways with loads of options for detours to shorten or lengthen a run here. The pathways are good but wet and muddy in places.

If you run as far as the fairy lake then you know you are then in Lady Herveys Wood. However for this run I run a circular route around Adkins Wood and return by the same route home.


  1. hey, nice pics. you have some great places to run.

  2. All this running and fantastic photos too. Do you really run with a camera as well?

  3. Thanks Londonjogger for a few years I moved to London and used to run around the parks St James, green park and Hyde Park but thats another story.

    yes i run with a camera most of the time. I guess this is a little bit odd behavior but to be honest if it is light weight I hardly notice it. Thanks for comments on photos, kind of you
