Description

This book describes 40 easy-to-moderate circular day walks, grouped by area: Northeast coast and the Broads; South Norfolk, the Yare and the Waveney; North Norfolk and coast; Central Norfolk and Breckland and West Norfolk and Fens. Each walk is described step-by-step, illustrated with 1:40K OS map extracts and packed with historical, geological and other information about the landscape the route passes through.

The Fenland region of Norfolk's far west is flat and low-lying, as are the marshes and waterways of the Broads in the east, but between these two extremes there is a great deal of topography going on. The county is far more varied than most outsiders imagine, with several distinct and unique landscapes. As well as Broads and the Fens, it has the sandy Brecks, rolling farmland, ancient woodland, meandering rivers and the gorgeous North Norfolk coast with its beaches, shingle banks, salt marshes and tidal mud flats.

  • Seasons
    all routes can be walked year-round; each season has its charms: summer for wild flowers; spring and autumn for migrating birds; the austere landscape of winter, especially on the coast
  • Centres
    Norwich, King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth and Cromer
  • Difficulty
    all routes are easy to moderate and can be done by anyone of reasonable fitness; no specialist equipment or skills necessary; Norfolk may not be quite as flat as it is sometimes claimed but with the highest land just 100m above sea level walking is largely on the level
  • Must See
    surprisingly varied landscapes: a spectacular coastline of sand dunes, saltmarsh and tidal creeks; the unique inland waterworld of the Norfolk Broads; the dry Breckland region and the big-sky country of the Fens
