Easter Saturday - Treasure Hunt at Neatherd Moor
A 'Treasure Hunt' for all the family, with an Easter Egg for all the children
that take part in the hunt around The Moor.
Join us at the car park near the pond on Neatherd Moor any time between 2:00pm
and 3:00pm; just bring a pencil to jot down what you find and a £1 per
child. The ‘Treasure’ will be around a designated walk on the moor so sturdy
footwear is recommended as parts may well be muddy. Please allow just over an
hour to complete the walk.
Parking may be limited by the playground and there are no toilets on site. Also,
we ask that the adults keep an eye on the children at all times.
To book a place please contact:

Easter Monday - MNR Train Walk (Yaxham)
Join us for a 6¼ mile walk (about 2½ hours), starting with a 10
minute heritage diesel railcar ride on the Mid-Norfolk Railway’s heritage
diesel railcar to Yaxham.
The walk itself will be along country paths and a couple of quiet lanes,
to enter Dereham over the River Tud. From there, we will return to our
starting point mostly along tracks, including a brief visit to Badley Moor, to
reach Tesco and so back to the railway station. Here, there will be a drink
(tea, coffee or soft drink) and cake at the Station Refreshment Room on
By then, it will be lunch time, and if you want more to eat or drink, there
will be 10% off all further catering purchases made at that time. Children under
5 travel and walk free, but their refreshments will need to be purchased.
The walk starts at Dereham Railway Station (free parking) at 10:15 for the 10:30
train to Yaxham. It will include a 15 minute short break for those bringing
their own refreshments (or who just want a rest).
Well controlled dogs are welcome, though there are limited open spaces and we do
cross a number of roads.
Booking is strongly advised, further details and tickets (£6.50, which
includes travel, the walk, and drink and cake on return) are available from any
