Our Favourite Local Walks

This page is being compiled as an ongoing project as we discover new walks in the area and as we produce our monthly Rewild Norfolk newsletter. We’d love you to sign up to Rewild Norfolk (at the bottom of the page) which is full of seasonal and nature-based ideas, including foraging tips and ways to enjoy exploring nature each month. We'll be sharing our favourite parts of Norfolk, including walks, beaches and natural spaces to help you get the most out of your next visit to the area. You'll also get a peek into life on our smallholding as we seek out our version of the "good life".

Short circular walk

Grab an OS map from the book shelf onsite to follow the exact route. Here’s the route I’ve mapped online.
