A great circular walk for wildlife and coast fans. Walk through the RSPB nature reserve and along the sea wall overlooking The Wash. The return leg of the walk crosses farmland and uses part of the old sea wall. The walk uses field paths and sea bank paths. Mostly easy level walking you may encounter stiles and livestock. It may be muddy in places if wet. The walk starts at RSPB Frampton Marsh nature reserve which lies approximately five miles south east of Boston.
