Marriott’s Way

P1030109The Marriott’s Way is a 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route which follows the routes of two disused railway lines, running between the historic market town of Aylsham and the medieval city of Norwich.

The route is named after the chief engineer and manager of the Midland and Great Northern Railway system William Marriott.

Countryside, wildlife, public art and a wealth of local history can be found along the way, whilst Marriott’s Way itself is a county wildlife site and passes through many interesting landscapes and wildlife-rich habitats, such as the Wensum river valley and Whitwell Common.

Along Marriott’s Way you may see a variety of birds, animals and plants including kestrels, owls, hares, deer, butterflies, primroses, orchids and even otters and kingfishers.

If you‘re beginning your journey in Norwich, you will find the entrance to Marriott’s Way by the roundabout at Barn Road and Barker Street on the inner ring road.

In Aylsham, you will find the entrance on Norwich Road, opposite the Bure Valley Railway station. Alternatively, there are many other access points at villages and road junctions.
