The Bungay Loop takes you along a stretch of the River Waveney known for its placid, crystal clear waters and easy navigation. Canadian canoes are the perfect choice for a leisurely paddle on a warm summer day and can be hired locally. The loop takes about three hours unless you stop off for a picnic or break.
Canoeing on the Bungay Loop is a great way to experience river life and you can combine a nature trail with a canoeing safari. Canoes have the advantage of being totally silent, allowing you to get closer to wildlife whilst enjoying the beautiful landscape. The stretch of river from Earsham to Ellingham is ideal for spotting wildlife and butterflies, otters, swans, kingfishers and herons are all regular visitors.
Landguard Fort in Felixstowe has been an important part of the local defences for centuries helping to ward off invaders as far back as Tudor Times. It was originally designed to guard the entrance to Harwich and has been modified many times since then. During the Second World War, it became one of the balloon launch sites of Operation Outward, for attacks on Germany.
However, recently it has started to attract attention due to strange activities. Visitors as well as local people, have experienced unusual sightings in or around the Fort. The most common sighting is the image of a sailor looking out of the top right window (the side visible from the road). Most reporting's were in the 1990s, but occasionally there are still reports of lights at night and being "pushed" whilst visiting the top floors.
