With the opening of the 12 mile Wensum Way between Gressenhall and Lenwade in mid Norfolk, a brand new long distance walking opportunity has been created that provides a continuous east/west path across the county between King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth. The new route provides the central portion of a cross-county route that begins with the Nar Valley Way in King’s Lynn on the Wash, continues with the Wensum Way and Marriott’s Way to Norwich and from here follows the Wherryman’s Way to Great Yarmouth on the North Sea coast. The entire route is 96 miles in length and follows some of Norfolk’s principal rivers – the Nar, Wensum and Yare – for much of the way.
This April (2014) our very own Chairman, Hilary Cox, completed the Cross-Norfolk Challenge and walked and cycled from King’s Lynn to Great Yarmouth in three days!
