Waveney Ramblers led this walk from the Outney Common, Bungay car park near the golf club.
Head SW and cross the A143 using the footbridge.
Head SE along Outney Road, past the attractive alms houses and turn left at the end into Earsham Street.
Head east along Earsham street until you reach the Castle Inn. Turn right and go south through their car park.
In the car park, keep left and head uphill along a footpath. Then head SE past the castle ruins.
At the end of the path, turn right and head south along Castle Orchard. This leads to another footpath heading south.

Look for the alley on the left which leads to the perimeter of Bungay High School.
At the perimeter fence, turn right and head south along the footpath. Go through an accordian stile into a meadow.

Your target is a footbridge which can be seen if the crops are not too high. Don't aim for the hedge beyond the dip.
The footbridge is mid way between the hedge and the right field edge on a bearing of 160 degrees.
Cross the bridge and turn left heading east. Ignore the right turn towards Shoe Devil Lane and go straight on.
The path kinks right and left again. Head NE all the way to the A144, Bungay to Halesworth road.
