Thuxton MNR Walk
A triple treat and more ...
Join us for a 7 mile walk (about 3 hours) for three treats.
- First, a ride on the Mid-Norfolk Railway’s heritage diesel railcar to
- Second, a walk through the fields and along tracks, back into
- Third, a drink (tea, coffee or soft drink) and cake at the Station
Refreshment Room on return.
Oh, and fourth, if you want more to eat or drink, 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.
Free parking is available at the station.
We will meet at Dereham Railway station (NR20 1DF) at 10:15, ready to catch the
10:30 train to Thuxton. Alighting here, we will follow tracks and paths (and a
few short sections of road) bringing us back into Dereham, via Garvestone and
the edge of Whinburgh. There are three stiles and three gates on the walk. Well
controlled dogs are welcome, though there are limited open spaces and we do
cross the railway and a number of roads (we walk a short way along some of
them); dogs travel free on the railway.
Booking is strongly advised: further details and tickets (£7.50, which
includes travel, the walk, and drink and cake on return) are available from any
