Landmarks/Sites to see?
Starston Parish Church sits on the banks of Starston Beck, both of which are worth a look. Gawdy Hall Estate which is slightly off the route (is signposted however) contains lots of ancient woodland and wildlife. From Cuckoo Hill you can see great views over the Waveney Valley.
