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). 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 Common.

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 start.

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 dtc.fpwarden@talktalk.net (07505 426750) or any committee member.
