Geo-Trips :: Hertfordshire to Ipswich

Ipswich

A drive from Flint Cross, Sun, 22 May 2022 by David Howard

Part of my seasonal operations once the clocks go forward is to cover patches on my map I haven't been to, based on how long it takes to get there before it gets dark, as the usual plan is taking photos there and back, often using different routes to double my coverage.

I had bypassed Ipswich before but hadn't been into it with a camera, so used the route from Royston east to also cover part of the route beyond Sudbury, although a left turn was missed and got to Hadleigh cross country, and the route through Ilford is diabolical at almost any time so try and avoid it. It was a nice easy run, and didn't plan any route within Ipswich itself, but just went to one edge in Westerfield, then returned to the A12 using the signposts so I didn't get too lost. It's no problem using the A12 at night, and as it was late by then was happy to go back what becomes the quick way after about 8pm. It's a route I've known all my life as my grandparents lived off the A12 in Ilford so used it regularly.
