Walking Close to King's Lynn

Walking Close to King's Lynn

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

Known only as Lynn by local people, the town was originally called Bishop's Lynn when it was part of the estate of the Bishop of Norwich. Henry VIII confiscated the property during the reformation and it became King's Lynn. The Great Ouse river, to the west of the town, is the fourth longest river in England flowing for 150 miles from Syresham in Northamptonshire to the Wash at King's Lynn. The name Ouse is simply the Celtic word for water.

This guide describes twelve varied and interesting circular walks in the countryside close to King's Lynn with distances between 3.5 and 8 miles.

The walk locations are:
Bawsey Country Park and Leziate Heath - 6.25 miles
