Brecks Heritage Trails

'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 ...'

Dereham Walks

'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.'

Walking in Norfolk: Swaffham

'Swaffham is the perfect gateway for walkers to explore the diverse landscapes of the Fenland to the west, with old drove roads giving unique access to quiet countryside, and the Brecks to the south and west, with gentle slopes and dry heathland. To the north there are some hidden gems of archaeological interest with a variety of abandoned medieval villages, churches and castles to discover. '
