Stiffkey from Wells-Next-The-Sea | The Norfolk Coast PathTuesday, October 28, 2014
We've done a lot of walking lately. Taking a few hours at the weekend to just slow down, breathe in some fresh air and drink in the scenery at a steady pace on foot is invaluable. In Norfolk we're very lucky to have plenty of well walked paths and trails (although never enough in my book, but that's perhaps just me being demanding again) with the Norfolk coast path being a significant route following the coastline.
Usually when we visit Wells-Next-The-Sea we mooch through the high street down to the harbour then straight down to the sand and along as far as Holkham sometimes. It's not often we take the coast path East.
Back in September we thought we'd ring the changes and take the walk from Wells to Stiffkey. The wind blew away the cobwebs and the fresh sea air left us feeling more tired than usual – is that a myth or is there some logic behind it?
Once we arrived at Stiffkey there was nothing for it but to turn around and walk back again, what else.
