Nar Valley Way - Narborough to Dereham

Newton Mill

A 22 mile walk along the Nar Valley Way from Narborough to Dereham

This route is full of historic features including ruins of priories and castles as well as magnificent halls and watermills. The walk provides a varied landscape with woodland trails, riverside paths and saunters across open fields of this pleasant Norfolk countryside. Although a lengthy section of the Nar Valley Way there is plenty of time to accomplish the feat with late buses linking the two ends.

Nar Valley Way - Kings Lynn to Narborough

Brick remains from the bridge which carried the former Kings Lynn to Dereham railway

A 15 mile walk following the River Nar from its outlet to the River Ouse up to Narborough

The walk starts along the quayside at Kings Lynn with all its fascinating historic buildings. The path soon heads out into open countryside following the river across this open landscape. Big skies. Views for miles and little in the way of civilisation until Narborough is reached.

The Peddars Way - Castle Acre to Heacham

After three days of walking, the Peddars Way finally reaches the Norfolk coast. Heacham is not officially on the Peddars Way or the North Norfolk Coast Path, but it was the only place we could find available accommodation in the Sedgeford and Ringstead area for that particular night. It had been a tough few days walking on hard tracks and lanes which had took its toll on the feet so the prospect of gentler coastal walking gave a focus to complete this National Trail and continue on the North Norfolk Coast Path. This section of the walk with its open landscape and undulating hills allowed us to see just how straight the trail was - it could be seen stretching out into the distance for miles.

The Peddars Way - Watton to Castle Acre

A long and straight trail across lanes and tracks to Castle Acre. Once at Little Cressingham the Peddars Way draws a long straight line through across the landscape. Gentle undulations provide little in the way of changing scenery and The Blue Lion at North Pickenham provides a very welcome half way point to rejuvenate ones energies and rest ones weary legs and feet from the hard tracks and metalled lanes. Castle Acre is a novel little village with its castle and priory ruins, both of which are well worth exploring.
