Nick Cottam, author of Walking the Deben: 10 Walks from Source to Mouth invites a small number of socially distanced walkers to join him for the 10-10-10 Challenge in support of the Woodbridge Riverside Trust. From the 10th to the 19th of September, starting at 10am each day, Nick will be walking all 10 of the walks in his book – one each day. Up to three people are invited to take part in each walk on a first come first served basis. If you want to apply to join more than one walk that’s fine. 

As in the book, the walks follow the course of the river from north to south, starting at Debenham and finishing at Felixstowe Ferry where the Deben meets the North Sea.

If you would like to join Nick for one of the walks (see list below) please email nick@nickcottam.com. The entry fee for each walk is £20, including a copy of the book Walking the Deben. All profits will go to the Woodbridge Riverside Trust.
