Reflections on Nature in Sudbury During Lockdown

By Mike and Sue Fahie-Wilson

"Fourteen years ago we moved to Shimpling Street, just north of Sudbury in the hills which the locals call the Suffolk Alps. It was a good move – uplifting views over beautiful farmland in every direction. Sudbury is our local town and similarly blessed by the beauty of the countryside around it and especially by the river – Sudbury on the Stour. The restrictions imposed by the pandemic gave us cause to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in this lovely corner of Suffolk and how important it is to appreciate and cherish it."
