Walking Close to North Norfolk

Walking Close to North Norfolk

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 simple and detailed and include clear pencil drawn sketch maps.

This guide describes eleven varied and interesting circular routes in the area around Cromer and Sheringham. The walks are between 4 and 7 miles in length except for one at 10 miles. The high ground along the edge of the sea near Cromer, including Kelling Heath, is known as the Cromer Ridge. It is a moraine consisting of the debris pushed along at the end of the glacier grinding its way out of what is now the North Sea at the end of the last Ice Age, ten thousand years ago. A handful of fishing boats still operate from the beach at Sheringham, but it is from the leisure market that the town thrives. Blickling Hall is reputed to be the most haunted stately home in England. It was the ancestral home of Anne Boleyn, whose elder brother and sister were born there.

The walk locations are:
Wiveton and Blakeney - 7 miles
Holt and Holt country park - 5.25 miles
Roughton and Marble Hill - 7 miles
Cromer and Incleborough Hill - 5.5 miles
Cromer and Felbrigg Hall - 10.25 miles
