Maria led a walk in the Attlebridge area, covering Lyng, Pockthorpe, Little Witchingham and Swannington.
A lovely walk led by Carol, starting at Burnham Norton and then going through to Wells, past Holkham Hall and then back to the Burnhams. There was a lovely variety of scenery during the walk, not least the expansive beach. There were numerous stops for ice creams (oops!) to help keep cool in the sun.
Richard led a 22.75-mile walk around the Holkham area as our July 2017 walk. This is one of the longest distances that Ramblers offer in Norfolk, but it didn’t put off a determined number of walkers taking part.
There were beautiful views over the coast as well as further views of Holkham Hall, tying into the walk offered by Carol the previous month. It’s great to see that there’s demand for these longer walks and that there are leaders kind enough to lead them.
Pigney’s Wood, North Walsham
This was the first walk in the new Legstretchers programme, starting near North Walsham and then going up to Bacton, Mundesley and then back through the countryside to Pigney’s Wood.
There were twelve people on the first walk, not bad at all given the time of year! We were though blessed with excellent weather and the sea wasn’t too breezy.
Marching back up to the line of the railway track towards the end of the walk. Most of our walkers were still fit and ready to do more!
It’s essential to note that walkers stand on the edge of the cliff very much at their own risk….. (NB, Cas is a trained professional, do not attempt to recreate this at home or at any cliffs nearby to home).
Walking across to the delights of Bacton Gas Terminal.
The old railway line at the start of the walk.
It was really good to see a healthy attendance on the first walk, with future walks being held on the first Sunday of every month. Congratulations also to Richard May, the area chairman, who successfully completed the walk with only several injuries.
