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.

New walk guides published!
After a mammoth effort over the last year, 14 new or revised walk guides and a couple of information leaflets are now available. Three thousand have been printed and will be distributed free of charge. The library is one of many places where you can pick up your own pack.

You can also download printable PDF versions on our Published Walks page.

Have you thought about downloading the PDF version to your phone instead of carrying a paper version?

Update 13 February:
A small launch event was held at Dereham Library, see the press release.

Garden Party
Garden Party Walk

The rain passed in the morning leaving a brighter and dry afternoon just in time for our "Garden Party" walk.

A group of about 25 set out to explore the public rights of way to the east via Etling Green and then north to Northall Green, before heading back for tea and home made cakes ... yum!
