Bylaws and Access
When using the Gainsborough Trail, please behave considerately and observe any regulations displayed at various points along the routes. In particular, do not disturb or interfere with any grazing cattle - they are harmless if left alone. Please keep your dogs under proper control at all times and clean up after them appropriately to keep paths pleasant for other users.
There are wheelchair access gates on the Meadow Walk and some of the paths are suitable for chairs with appropriate wheels, but please be aware that prevailing or recent weather conditions can make some areas inaccessible, particularly as the water meadows are an active flood plain. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear at all times.
The Gainsborough Trail Project Team would like to acknowledge Sudbury Town Council, Chilton Parish Council, Great Cornard Parish Council, Babergh District Council and Suffolk County Council (SCC) Councillors Colin Spence and John Sayers for financial support with this project. Our thanks also to the the Sudbury Common Lands Charity Senior Warden Adrian Walters, River Stour Trust, Sudbury Museum Trust, Mackman Group, SCC Countryside Access Development Team stalwarts David Falk and Jackie Gillis, LAH Signs, Sudbury Market Town Partnership and Peter Clifford for practical assistance with information, resources and design.
