Walking to Sudbury Town Centre will take just under 30 minutes at an average pace, whilst there are plenty of local amenities, including an Early Years Centre, schools, doctor’s surgery and dental clinic, supermarket and convenience store, that will take you only 10 minutes or less to get to. Please refer to the adjacent map of the local area.
Overall, Weaver’s Meadow is very well-connected for both walking and cycling, with direct access to Bures Road and Broom Street (via Radiator Road), or to Head Lane (via Phillips Field Road). Leisurely walking is adequately provided for with public rights of way and footways within Great Cornard and onto Sudbury. A path that follows the river, and aptly named Riverside Walk, connects to Sudbury Town Centre by the train station.
For cycling, Bures Road and Broom Street, make up part of the South Suffolk cycle route A2 allowing access around Great Cornard and into Sudbury. Whilst to the west of the River Stour is the Sustrans National Cycle Route 13 that connects Bures, Long Melford and Bury St Edmunds. Your local cycle map is available to download here
