A new visitor guide has been created for the Shotley Peninsula in a bid to promote an “undiscovered nugget” of Suffolk.

The booklet highlights attractions such as Alton Park, Shearwater Sailing School, Woolverstone Marina, Suffolk Food Hall, Jimmy’s Farm and the Commonwealth War Graves.

The area’s natural charms including sand and shingle beaches, ancient woodlands and the rivers Orwell and Stour are also celebrated, along with the wildlife they house.

The project has been led by Shotley Peninsula Tourism Action Group (SPTAG), which was set up by Babergh District Council.

Oliver Paul, co-owner of Suffolk Food Hall and chairman of SPTAG, said the initiative had been driven by the “enthusiasm and energy” of the group members, most of whom have a personal connection with the Peninsula.

He added: “The aim is to attract more people to come to the Peninsula and also for those who live here to get out and enjoy the things on their doorstep.”

Anthony Cullen, who runs the Photographic Day photography studio in Pin Mill, took the stunning images used in the guide.

When asked what Shotley Peninsula has to offer, Mr Cullen said: “I think pretty much everything, that’s the great thing about it, and it’s very much a surprise to people when they come. It’s a real undiscovered nugget. It’s a very relaxed, down to earth place. There’s no pretensions.”

David Wood is county councillor for the Peninsula and chairman of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership.

He said: “I think everyone knows about the real hotspots of the AONB like Snape and Aldeburgh, but this is really undiscovered and it’s just a fascinating place to visit.”

Cathy Shelbourne, of Sea Shell Communications, wrote the guide and Laura Hall from Holbrook designed it.

Ms Shelbourne said Shotley Peninsula was Suffolk’s “most surprising destination”, as people didn’t realise what it had to offer until they visited.

The guide is available at key businesses and community locations across the county or online.
