Walking in Norfolk: 40 circular walks in the Broads, Brecks, Fens and along the coast

In stock
Guidebook to 40 easy to moderate walks in the English county of Norfolk. Circular routes of 4 to 12 miles show off the area's surprisingly varied landscape: the Broads, Brecks and Fens and coastal dunes, salt marsh and tidal creeks. Also includes information on Norfolk's rich history and unique plants and wildlife.
This guidebook describes 40 circular walks in Norfolk, including walks along the coast and walks exploring the Fens and the Broads. From 4 to 12 miles, these mostly flat walks use footpaths, bridleways and quiet country lanes, and some involve parts of long-distance paths, including the Peddars Way, Norfolk Coast Path, Boudica's Way and Weavers Way.

The walks are divided into five sections: walks on the northeast coast and the Broads; walks in south Norfolk, the Yare and Waveney; walks in North Norfolk and the Coast; walks in Central Norfolk and Breckland; and walks in West Norfolk and the Fens. All routes are easy to moderate and can be done by anyone of reasonable fitness and enjoyed all year round. Each route is described step-by-step, illustrated with 1:40K OS map extracts and packed with historical, geological and other information about the landscape the route passes through.

The Fenland region of Norfolk's far west is flat and low-lying, as are the marshes and waterways of the Broads in the east, but between these two extremes there is a great deal of topography going on. The county is far more varied than most outsiders imagine, with several distinct and unique landscapes. As well as Broads and the Fens, it has the sandy Brecks, rolling farmland, ancient woodland, meandering rivers and the gorgeous North Norfolk coast with its beaches, shingle banks, salt marshes and tidal mud flats.
