Not long to go – Norfolk Walking Festival 2015

It’s nearly here – yes the Norfolk Walking Festival starts this weekend, with an exciting line-up of events to get you started for two weeks of festival fun (Saturday 17th October – Sunday 1st November).

On Saturday 17th, if you want to find out about the fascinating geology of our coast, join a talk and walk led by expert Martin Warren.

Starting with a presentation in the Simon Aspinall Education Centre at NWT Cley marshes, you’ll then take a 2.7 mile walk to look at examples in the field.

Starts 10am, Saturday 17th October – £3.50 for NWT members, £5 non-members.

Get your walking shoes on for a choice of several great walks on Sunday 18th October

1) Discover wildflowers living in the diverse habitats of our coast in ‘Autumn Wildflowers Revealed‘ – A 5.5 mile walk led by local experts from the Norfolk Flora Group and Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists Society.

This afternoon walk starts at 1.30pm from beautiful Salthouse – Tickets £4

2) If you’ve ever wondered what geocaching is, stretch your legs on this 9 mile guided walk from stunning West Runton. Using your detective skills to find our newly placed geocache trail along the way, explore hilly Roman Camp before heading to Cromer, then return to West Runton along the new stretch of Norfolk Coast Path.
