Norwich Riverside Walk

View to Whitefriars bridge

A simple 2.5 mile walk alongside the River Wensum through Norwich.

This picturesque walk through the centre of Norwich links the Marriott's Way at Barn Road roundabout on the inner ring road with The Wherryman's Way and Boudicca Way at Norwich Railway Station. There is a lot of history to the bridges over the River Wensom and associated folklore which is detailed in the features to this walk.

Stour and Orwell Walk - Felixstowe to Ipswich

A 17 mile walk along the banks of the Orwell River in Suffolk starting at Felixstowe and ending in the centre of Ipswich

The Stour and Orwell path is an extension to the southern end of the Suffolk Coast Path and follows the coast along the estuaries of the Orwell and the Stour. The start of the walk is characterised by the earthen river defences along which the footpath navigates. From Levington Creek an alternative route gives a change of scenery as it passes through the quaint Suffolk village of Levington and then down through Broke Hall Woods to Nacton. Unfortunately the grounds around Orwell Park House are private and it is not until one reaches the Orwell Country Park that the views of the river are regained which are dominated by the vast structure of the Orwell Bridge. The final stage through to the centre of Ipswich was surprisingly green despite the urban surroundings, walking through Pipers Vale, Landseer Park and Holywells Park.
