More route checking for our Felbrigg walk. Along lanes and tracks to Felbrigg village and then to the estate grounds, ambled alongside grazing sheep and to the Hall itself.
Refreshments at the cafe, then visited the church and explored the woodlands and the lake. Some might like to return to Cromer via the same route - and some might take the longer route via Runton to complete the circuit - hope to check that out next!
Our upcoming weekend walk, 27 July, is now more flexible.
Celebrate Norfolk Day with a beautiful circular walk from Cromer via Felbrigg Hall, one of Norfolk's impressive stately homes. The full route is 6-7 miles, but we have also plotted a series of shorter routes for those who prefer a more leisurely walk of about 3 miles.
This is one of Walk Cromer's bi-monthly weekend walk events which raise funds for The British Heart Foundation, a charity which supports research into heart disease, strokes and vascular dementia. A specially designed map and information sheet has been produced and will be available to pick up for free at both Merchants Place and Cromer information Centre on Saturday July 27th.
Choose your own time and pace for this self led walk which starts from the Information Centre on Louden Rd, and begins with a steady climb out of the town along the Weavers Way where you can stand and look back at the wonderful scenery before crossing a bridge over the railway line.
Felbrigg Hall is noted for it's Jacobean architecture and fine Georgian interior, standing in approx. 7 sq km of parkland from which there is access to a number of other way-marked walks and the National Cycle network.
The full walk goes through the park, up "the lions mouth" and loops round back to Cromer via the wooded hills of East Runton.
Why not wear black, white and yellow, to echo the colours of the Norfolk flag, and send us your photos. There will be a £10 prize for the best picture, send to: email@example.com

July is here and the Norfolk Coast Path is breathtaking right now in the Summer sun but I'm here with a heads up.
It's Brown Tailed Moth season. These little catapillers are beautiful but their hair is an irritant which causes an itcy rash. We advise not disturbing the caterpillar tents as these are full of hairs and then avoid the caterpillars once they emerge, usually late July early August.
Trail Officer Ben was caught out with a tent.
Will get back to you with an update once we gather some medical advice should you find yourself caught in a one to one with these other Coast Path users!
