APM - Etling Green Walk
Join us for a 5 mile walk, taking about 2 hours. The walk starts at 1330 from
Church House (Church Street, Dereham NR19 1DN). Church House is under 5 minutes’
walk from the Market Place. There is no parking at Church House - use the usual
parking locations in the town.
The route planned takes us down the High Street and then past the railway
station. We turn off Norwich Road to reach The Neatherd, then follow a track to
Etling Green. We will walk round the southern part of the Green, then cross a
field to reach another track which marks the northern edge of The Neatherd. We
recross the railway to walk back into the town and return to Church House.
Please note that the route may be changed if conditions necessitate this.
There are no gates or stiles on the walk. Well controlled dogs are welcome -
there are a few open spaces but we do cross a number of roads. Please note that
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 start.
Annual Public Meeting (APM)
There is no charge
for this walk or for the tea/coffee plus cake at the
following APM - though we welcome any donations!
The APM is a review of the year and an opportunity to ask questions of the
committee and make suggestions. What would you like Dereham WaW to do?
Booking would be helpful but not vital: please see any Dereham Walkers are

2018 Event Diary
16 June (13:30): 1330 - a shorter, Dereham based walk, ending with
refreshments at our Annual Public Meeting, which we hope you will attend - come
and give us your thoughts about what we’ve been doing, and, more importantly,
what we should do in the future.
29 July (13:30): a town walk around some of the most important historical
sites in the town; there won’t be a long distance covered, but plenty of
information from (among others) St Nicholas Church, Bishop Bonner’s Cottage
Museum and Mid Norfolk Railway (suppliers of tea and cake). As this is a little
different, we would much appreciate an idea of whether this would appeal to you
- no obligation, of course.
27 Aug: A 'standard' walk with refreshments.
30 Sept: Walk ending with a garden party
1 Jan 2019: New Year's Day walk
