Overview

'Dereham itself offers a good range of different types of public walking routes, including many footpaths and restricted byways, though most are apparently little known to judge by the positive reactions of people to the Dereham Walks Guides. These include urban routes through the town, stream side paths across water meadows and field edge paths out in the country ...  We have led a number of walks for anyone to join, and plan to continue doing this, always making our walks a bit different.'

Overview

'The Brecks has a rich diversity of natural and man-made landscape heritage just waiting to be explored.  Public access to it, however, remains under-developed and unstructured. The Breckland Society aims to address this by creating a series of 10 heritage trails across the Norfolk and Suffolk Brecks. These trails will be designed for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, utilising existing rights of way, including bridleways and cycle paths. The trails will be based upon circular routes of differing lengths, with each one focused on a specific heritage theme ...'

Breaking New Ground

Overview

'Dereham is a market town at the heart of Norfolk which flourished in the 7th century. It is thought that St Withburga, youngest daughter of Anna, King of the East Angles, built a nunnery and church. The town is also historically linked to agriculture being located in the middle of one of Britain’s most important farming regions. This is highlighted on many of the walks which take you across some of Norfolk’s beautiful farming landscapes.'

Take a local route or follow an ancient trackway such as the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path National Trail ... Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the pine forests, the lonely beauty of the Heaths or visit our bustling market towns.'
