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.

APM - Etling Green Walk
Join us for a 5 miles walk, taking about 2 hours. The walk starts at 13:30, from Church House (Church Street, Dereham NR19 1DN). We will cross Neatherd Moor on our way to explore Elting Green.

The walk returns to Church House where we will hold our Annual Public Meeting; a review of the year and an opportunity to ask questions of the committee or make suggestions, after which there will be tea/coffee and cake.

There is no charge to attend the walk or APM (as always, donations welcome). To help with organisation please let us know if you plan to attend, contact Ken Hawkins at dtc.fpwarden@talktalk.net (07505 426750), or let any committee member know.

More information in the current events section or download our flyer (opens in new tab).

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?
