Three guided walks in North Norfolk

Ref: C2226780

We are running this as a short course of 3 guided walks on consecutive Fridays. Each walk will take you through an area of special historical interest, and the landscape features - natural, and man-made - will be explained as we go along. You may also like to use these walks to hone your map-reading skills. Walk 1: (Fri Sept 20) Worstead and the North Walsham & Dilham Canal. Walk 2: (Fri Sept 27) Wells next the Sea; town & marsh. Walk 3: (Fri Oct 4) Salthouse - heath and coast. The walks are between 4 and 6 miles in length; they are not arduous, although a reasonable level of fitness is expected, and the third walk will involve some walking on shingle and a brief climb at the end. This is your chance to find out what landscape history if really all about. More details, and full instructions will be available via the Norwich Branch website nearer the start date.
