New Sandlings Waymarker Design

The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Unit has started to replace the old Sandlings Waymarkers with a new design. These green plastic plaques have been mounted over the previous logo on existing fingerposts. The new plaques carry a nightjar logo and are part of resigning process that is being carried out throughout the long distance walk that links Ipswich and Southwold. During the resigning process damaged fingerposts are being replaced.
On the left The new design logo as shown on an existing fingerpost near to the old Thorpeness Railway Station; On the right the old design on a Sandlings fingerpost between Knodishall and Thorpeness
The examples seen so far seen have been around the Thorpeness and Sizewell section of the route which have been introduced over the last couple of weeks.

  1. Good. I had no idea what the waymarker for the route was when I did the trail and I took the inscribed symbol to be some form of Chinese script! The new ones look much clearer.
