Route Outline

This part of the Norfolk coast is both designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and also has one of England and Wales's 15 National Trails passing through it. The walk described here visits the AONB, using some sections of the National Trail, The Peddars Way & Norfolk Coastal Path. The route is almost equally divided between first crossing some of the open arable countryside that is so predominant in East Anglia and then alongside some fascinating coastline. During the walk, Holme Nature Reserve and the picturesque village of Thornham are visited
