Fenland Ramblers on Wensum Way


It’s always lovely to read about other people using our Norfolk Trails and this week is a rather short but sweet feature for the Fenland Ramblers.

Fenland Ramblers are a local walking group based in Wisbech, as part of the national Ramblers association.

Their walks often venture further afield into surrounding areas, including our fine county of Norfolk.

Visit The Fenland Ramblers website for a programme of upcoming led walks. Past group walks have explored the Norfolk Coast Path and Peddars Way with several more coming up in February and March.

Members of the national Ramblers can join their local walking group to enjoy a variety of led group walks. Find your local Ramblers walking group.

We all know that walking is good for you and research conducted by the University of East Anglia shows evidence of the health benefits of group walking – “one of the best and easiest ways to boost overall health” – Read the full article.

Here is an extract from the Fenland Ramblers Blog of a walk incorporating part of the Wensum Way around Gressenhall.

“It was another cold crisp but sunny morning as I set off along part of the Wensum Way.”

As I made my way towards Drift Farm the adjoining fields were full of what I thought were soft fruit canes. Unusual for these parts. The next leg of the walk took me past Dillington Hall and their website explains why there were so many soft fruit plants.

I took the opportunity to ask one of the beaters about the soft fruit. She said that they were Blackcurrants, grown for Ribeena. My route then took me over and then under the Mid Norfolk Railway line before crossing Hoe Common and  Hoe Rough This is a conservation area and made a nice end to a 5.9 mile walk.”
