Little Cressingham to Castle Acre

Day 2 starts at Little Cressingham and follows a lovely route along parts of the Roman Road to the spectacular village of Castle Acre, with its breathtaking ruined priory and castle.

The first part of the trail out of Little Cressingham follows the road for about 2 to 3 miles which makes for quick progression and its a bonus thatthe road is nice a quiet!

Looking back to Little Cressingham Mill behind the trees.

Excellently signposted as expected for a national trail.

A view to Pickenham Hall.

The windfarm just south of Swaffham.

Great to be off the road and following the field edges to North Pickenham.

Stunning day for a walk.

Follow the arrows...

Crossing the river before entering North Pickenham.

North Pickenham.

Leaving the village there are traces of the old railway line that once ran through here.

This is the site of Great Palgrave, a deserted medieval village with plenty of earthworks marking houses and streets.

Great views along this stretch to Castle Acre.

The spectacular ruins of Castle Acre Priory - worth a look around.

Crossing the River Nar with traces of the Priory boundary wall.

Looking downstream to Castle Acre Priory.

Castle Acre Castle.

The Keep on the site of an older country house.

And the Bailey Gate, marking the end of the walk today.
