Stour Valley Path Passport
2019 is the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of the Stour Valley Path! In order to recognise this amazing achievement, the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Stour Valley is launching the Stour Valley Path Passport!
The passport is a small booklet, with room for one stamp from each section of the Stour Valley Path. When you are exploring the Stour Valley, you can collect these stamps from various local business that are situated along the footpath. The businesses vary, from cafés and pubs, to churches and local museums. Once you have completed your passport, you will send it, or a photograph of it, to us and will then receive your Stour Valley Path certificate as well as a prize.
As the businesses that are taking part in the Stour Valley Path Passport may change over time, there will be a list of current stamping stations on our website. See the basic list below, and please remember to download the full details for the address, opening times and information about a special gift or offer from the stamping station.
Simply get your passport stamped at the business, then claim your prize. You must claim your prize at the time of stamping the passport and only one prize can be claimed per passport.
