    Try and fit in a trip around Framlingham Castle – spectacular views and 900 years of history.
    Good luck with the trip – tandem riding is not for the faint hearted (especially on the ‘back seat’).

    Oddly enough I can recommend a good pub…

    I grew up around Sudbury next door to a village called Great Henny that has a pub called The Henny Swan. My namesake. I’m not sure if my parents were overly influenced by their surroundings (for some reason or another) or just had a deep sense of irony…Anyway, I’ll be following the blog on the night. I can just see you perched on the back of the bike critiquing James’ technique while he peddles away.

    Hugh, if you can get a ‘Hi Sam’ photo from the green at Fram, I will donate £50.

    On the way back, stop by Mrs Pinney’s (aka Butley Oystery) in Orford for the best seafood meal ever ever! Ann
