Walks in and around Dersingham
Visit the Sandringham area for lovely relaxing walks along Norfolk's stunning Sunset Coastline
Dersingham, nestling beside the picturesque Sandringham area, is a
great starting point for may country walks. The woodlands and
grounds of Sandringham Estate alone can occupy many a day of walking.
The famous Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path runs from Hunstanton
and continues along the coast to Cromer, with most of it passing through
the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Walking along the gentle Coastal Path treats all walkers to fabulous
views of open sandy beaches, endless skies, great beaches, clifftops,
marshes, acres of farmland and undulating Norfolk countryside. The
thriving birdlife is a birdwatcher's dream and attracts people from
all over the world. If you tire of walking the route is remarkably
well served by the Coasthopper bus service.
Fantastic scenery and landscape covering more than 90 miles of the
two trails of the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path. The trail
makes it particularly suitable for people with special access needs.
There are several lengths where you can gain equal access and enjoy the
countryside. Braille, large print, audio and DAISY guides are now
available through the UK library system. Quote ISBN 1-904823-24-6.
