Walking provides health and economic benefits and there are many places to walk in Dereham, some are public streets, some are parks and open spaces. Dereham has 35 public rights of way - paths and tracks which everyone can use by right. We have published fourteen walk-guides which cover most of the countryside paths.

Gressenhall Walk
By way of a change, our October walk started out of Dereham, at the Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. A cool but sunny morning saw 20 of us - including 2 visitors from The Netherlands - gather on the car park at the Workhouse for a little under 6 miles walk taking about 2½ hours.
