|Crown Pools is opposite the (top) bus station and anyone should be able to point you in the right direction.|
|To get to Crown pools from the railway station:-
As you come out of the station there is a bridge over the river in front of you. Go straight across the traffic lights and keep going over the traffic lights using the bus lanes as you are entitled to do.
|The first mile is the toughest part. Uphill! With the swimming baths behind you go left|
|Almost immediately left again into Neale Street. When joining larger road go left - uphill.|
|In less than 100yds you'll see a sign that is trying to be informative. What is it trying to tell you? "Here be ravening horses?" Anyway, thanks to the munificence of the Suffolk taxpayer you have been warned that there is a sneaky cycle route that branches on your right. Take it. Enjoy it. Make a mental note to look up "Arboretum" when you get to the pub (A full complement of dictionaries are available free-of-charge at the M+M)|
|At the top of the ‘Bridleway' you have vehicles coming at you from all directions. Fie! Pish! and Tosh! you cry as you aim at 3 O'clock along Park Rd.|
When Park road ends turn left.|
Down to roundabout then straight across.
|First right into Chelsworyth Avenue|
|At end of Chelsworth Rd. turn left.
Watch poorly maintained road surface - keep well into the road
Go carefully down Tuddenham hill - Bends and traffic.
|First left (200yds after crossing stream) signposted Witnesham and Clopton|
|Continue for about 2 miles then turn left at cross roads.|
|Turn first left (half a mile) signposted Swilland|
|Don't go down the dead end! Keep right|
|At tee turn left and after half a mile you have arrived at the Pearly Gates|
Fed, watered and had your brains fuddled
and err...chucked out at closing time. Which way home?
