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
(Greenfields Road, Dereham NR20 3TE). First Bus XL and Konect bus 8 have stops
in both directions on Norwich Road near the top of Cherry Lane. Car access is
via Greenfield Road.
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.) And we will take the opportunity to call in briefly at Badley Moor
There are no gates or stiles on the walk, apart from a kissing gate giving entry
to Badley Moor. Well controlled dogs are welcome - half of the route is along
isolated tracks, but we do also use and cross a number of roads. Please note
that after the first half hour, there are no toilets on the route, nor do we
pass any shops or food or drink outlets of any sort until we are back at the
Booking is recommended, with tickets costing £6, which includes tea or
coffee plus cake or savoury on our return to the Windmill. Contact Ken Hawkins
