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 Routes Walk
Booking now open

Join us for a 6½ miles walk, taking about 2¾ hours, visiting the ‘new routes’ being established in the town. The walk starts at 10:00 from Dereham Windmill (Greenfields Road, Dereham NR20 3TE).

The walk will explore all of the routes which have been claimed by Dereham Town Council as public rights of way; all of them are being recognised as Restricted Byways. (We will also use one additional route which is to be dedicated as a bridleway.) We will take the opportunity to call in briefly at Badley Moor Common.

Booking is recommended, with tickets costing £6, which includes tea or coffee plus cake or savoury on our return to the Windmill.
