Runton and Incleborough Hill Walk Sumary

Salt marsh

Short circular walk over Incleborough Hill in North Norfolk

Incleborough Hill stands above the villages of East and West Runton on the North Norfolk Coast. At 260 feet in height and covered with low level gorse bushes it provides magnificent unobstructed views across the coast from Cromer to Sheringhamm and beyond. One cannot help but be impressed and in awe at the sight.

The walk is not arduous and apart from a short climb up steps it is achievable by most able bodied folk. The return is down a much gentler slope to West Runton and to the coast to follow the Norfolk Coast path back to East Runton.


This is a walk summary intended to provide the user with just the essential information in order to navigate the walk route. Fully detailed information notes, refreshment stops and walk features are not included in this. A full write up will be included in the near future.
