'Cromer has welcomed walkers since time immemorial, fresh air – huge panoramas of land and sky. We are the gateway to a variety of trails and paths – There are walks that are buggy, wheelchair and dog friendly. When walking is done, we have places to eat, play and rest.'
'Holkham Hall is privately owned and a lived-in family home. As well as Viscount Coke and his family, two other families live here throughout the year and although the house is closed to the public in the winter, it is never empty or idle ... Access for pedestrians will be available via the walk-in gates at the north, east, south and west entrances from 9am to 5pm. There is free parking available close to the north gates in Holkham village car park.'
Holkham National Nature Reserve [GPS Cycle & Walking Routes]
'Stretching from the silt expanses of the Wash in the west through the coastal marshes, soft cliffs and hinterland of north Norfolk, to the dune system at Winterton in the east, it is an area of remarkable beauty, diversity and scientific importance. '
'The Village Visitor Guide - available from the Village Shop, the Cliff Top Café or the Parish Clerk - is a perfect starting point to familiarise yourselves with the layout of the village and immediate area.'
'The Bittern Line railway heads north from the beautiful cathedral city of Norwich passing through the unique wetland area of The Broads to the dramatic north Norfolk coast.'
'Coasthopper shadows the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail all the way along from Hunstanton to Cromer, so it's really easy to take the bus, get off for a good walk, and rejoin the bus a bit further along the route. What's more the Peddars Way National Trail also reaches the coast at Holme next the Sea.' Note that I have replaced the original Link used here with one to WalkCromer.
'The 41km stretch of the England Coast Path (ECP) from Sea Palling to Weybourne is now open to the public. Coastal access rights came into force along this stretch of coast on 12 December 2014 by order of the Secretary of State ... Sections of it follow the existing Norfolk Coast Path between Cromer and Weybourne..'
Ludham 'is surrounded on 3 sides by the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and it has its own small broad, Womack Water ... There is an extensive network of public footpaths and permissive paths allowing access to most parts of the parish. There is plenty of wildlife to see. Boats can be moored in Womack Water, at How Hill, Ludham Bridge, St Benet's and Coldharbour. There is even a small airfield if you want to arrive by plane'.
'North Norfolk has a fascinating landscape and the Geology Walks at West Runton have established a strong public following over more than 20 years ...
Martin Warren The Northfolk Project
'Paston Way is a 22 mile walk between Cromer and North Walsham, discovering the area's beautiful medieval churches. Each church has its own hidden history and one was even moved brick by brick from a cliff top to save it from the sea. To visit all 14 of the fine churches on the Paston Way, the trail covers 29.5 miles.'
'Inaugurated in 2008 by The North Norfolk Exhibition Project, this trail across Kelling and Salthouse heaths was set out to exhibit both the natural beauty of North Norfolk alongside examples of contemporary Norfolk art. Although most of the sculptures have now gone, the walk nonetheless provides a peaceful route around this part of the county.'
'Discover an exceptional variety of landscapes with amazing views, wildlife and history. A 10 km (6 mile) walk easily broken into short sections.'
Sheringham Woodland and Coastal Walk [National Trust]
Plan for 'a spinal route of about 9 miles connecting the riverside villages of Hoveton, Horning, Ludham and Potter Heigham, linking to existing lanes, bridleways and footpaths and avoiding the need for travel on the A1062, seen as one of Norfolk’s most dangerous roads'.
'Offers a rich contrast of scenery, from the woodlands and mixed farmland of north Norfolk to the grazing marshes beside the rivers Thurne, Bure and Yare.'
