How to Find Iken Canoe


Directions

From Snape, go through Snape village, over Snape bridge (with Snape Maltings and the Plough & Sail pub on your left) and fork immediately left on the B1084 signed to Iken and Orford. One mile further turn left at the crossroads signed to Iken. After a short distance, take the first turning on the left to Iken picnic site (keep left and go under the 6'7" vehicle height restriction barrier).

If you are coming from the South (A12) or West, go over the A12 bridge at Wickham Market, follow signs to Campsea Ashe and then Tunstall. From Tunstall, follow the signs to Snape, but turning off right (signed to Iken) 1 mile short of Snape. Drive through the forest to the give way sign at the Iken crossroads. Go straight on, and then follow the instructions above. (Postcode for sat nav is IP12 2EN but that will take you past the picnic site turn and in the wrong direction if you continue to follow its instructions when you are close).

Park up near the bottom right hand corner of the picnic site. This is a public site so please do not leave valuables in the car.

Walk in the direction of the Iken Canoe sign along the footpath, and after approx. 120m head downhill towards the river (not uphill to the right) and you will see our green boatshed below the cliff.
