Walks and Activities

Ramblers - Southern Norfolk Walks

From the website: 

Our group runs walks on some Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Thursday walks are for half a day and dog walkers are especially welcome on these.  Most of our walks are circular but a few involve public transport enabling us to do linear walks.  We are a friendly group and welcome walkers of all abilities – just ring the leader if you want to know more about what to expect, what to wear etc. Any walk over 7 miles will have a stop for refreshment – bring a packed lunch unless the walk says there is a pub stop.

The Boudicca Way and Angles Way run through our "patch" and members have been closely involved in their creation. They are often used as part of our circular and linear walks.

We also try to keep an eye on the local paths and have financed some improvements such as a new footbridge at Topcroft  and some new bridges as Bracon Ash

In the future we hope to host the occasional weekend away in, for example, the Peak District or closer to home in Suffolk

Tas Valley Walk
The Tas Valley Way runs between Eaton and Attleborough and links with Ketts Country Walk. The walk meanders through a landscape shaped by the Enclosure Acts of earlier years and where public access is now generally restricted to roads and public rights of way. There is online information at the link above and also a printed leaflet from which the above paragraph is taken. The leaflet, however, gives no indication of where it may be obtained. Try either South Norfolk District Council offices in Long Stratton (01508 533 633) or Norfolk County Hall Planning and Transportation (01603 222 769)
