Sedgeford


Event Details


General information

A 7.5 mile walk in High Norfolk with far ranging views towards Sandringham's woods, over the Wash to Lincolnshire and to the east beyond Great Bircham's windmill. After a picnic lunch en route we shall return along a remote and hilly section of the Peddars Way Roman road, recrossing the little valley of the River Heacham possibly the shortest of all Britian's (and the world's!) rare chalk streams. A short diversion has been arranged to visit two of the historic springs in and around Sedgeford which have been supplying the valley with water of exceptional clarity since the end of the last Ice Age.

Picnic en route. After the walk home made teas will be available until 4pm in the local church of St Mary the Virgin. Our visit coincides with the village open gardens day for church funds.
