My favourite walk part 1 | Norfolk Coast Path Cromer to SheringhamWednesday, October 08, 2014
I'm so excited to be sharing my favourite walk with you today! There are a fair few photographs which I hope will make you feel like you've tagged along with me and seen the sights (and just maybe be inspired to head along yourself).
The walk is a circular one from Cromer to Sheringham along the Norfolk Coast path (which takes an inland route) and then walking back along the beach to Cromer. As I took far too many pictures I've split this into two posts to keep it manageable.
I'm not entirely sure where the official start of the Norfolk coast path is in Cromer, but where we pick it up is beyond Manor Farm Campsite – which I've camped at many times over the years, it's a great place, lovely camping fields and marvellous modern facilities, it comes highly recommended by me if you're looking to camp at Cromer.
The Norfolk coast path is a well walked route, when we walked this section of it mid September it had been trimmed back a treat but I believe it is kept in good order all year round. I adore all the perfectly British paths and tracks: green hedges which sometimes meet overhead, well walked dirt trails and grass growing here there and everywhere.
No matter the current or recent conditions there is always a risk of encountering a bit of mud at Roman Camp which was non-existent when we visited this time but has been squelchy on previous visits. We love this walk so much we've done it around half a dozen times over the years and know that it's one which we'll enjoy time after time. The different seasons bring new sights and a different feeling but the offer of fresh air and a good stretch of the legs always remains.
The walk along the Norfolk coast path is apparently 5 miles but quite honestly it never feels this long, the distance is nothing at all, the time simply flies by ( a little too quickly if you ask me). You emerge back out at the coast at Beeston Regis, ready to go over the 'big hill'. This is where I'll leave it for now, but I'll share the rest soon.
