Waymarks: Views: History: Wildlife: Overall:

The Weavers Way is one of the main long distance paths through the Broads National Park. You can start at either Cromer or Great Yarmouth (personally I prefer to start at Great Yarmouth as Cromer is a more appealing destination) and it takes in many highlights along the way including Thurne Mill, Potter Heigham Bridge, Hickling Broad, Disused Railways Lines, Blickling Hall Estate and Felbrigg Hall Estate (both owned by the National Trust). Generally the walk is completed in 3-4 days with many accomodation options including B&B's, hotels, camping etc. Both the start and finish have excellent transport links including frequent busses and trains to Norwich.

Highlights Along The Route:
Cromer, Felbrigg Hall, Felbrigg Park, Blickling Hall Estate, Aylsham to North Walsham Railway Line, Briggate Railway, Honing Lock, Stalham, Hickling, Hickling Broad, River Thurne, Potter Heigham Bridge, Thurne Mill, River Bure, Tunstall Church, Halvergate Marshes, Berney Arms Mill, RSPB Breydon Water, Great Yarmouth
