The Newmarket Rides

August 26, 2016

The Newmarket Rides are located around the villages of Moulton, Gazeley and Barrow between Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds.

A landscape of rolling chalk valleys, pockets of ancient woodland, seasonal streams and picture perfect clusters of thatched lime-washed cottages – the area between Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds is special in so many ways.

With countless sites of moated farmsteads, medieval churches and mills, the remains of a motte and bailey, a malt kiln and packhorse bridge, this is an historic area with thousands of tales to tell.

The Newmarket Rides offer a mix of off-road, quiet lane and on-road routes for walking, cycling and horse riding.

The bridleway and byway network here is quite extensive and very popular for horse riding. Some routes are also used by farm vehicles, so please take care at all times when following these routes.
