West Runton, Beacon Hill, and Beeston Bump
« on: 12:58:17, 11/01/18 »
This was a walk in North Norfolk that I did with the kids last year. Slowly but surely catching up with writing up these old walks now...


Anyway... 3 hills (only 2 officially classified as such) and an additional hidden trig point. Not bad for a day in Norfolk!

Great walk and description (a bit different from your Edale Skyline stroll...). Your Norfolk expedition reminded me of my fondness for that part of the N.Norfolk coast, we used to go there every few weeks to visit my father-in law. He died 10 years ago and we have not been back since,  :o but I have good memories of Beacon Hill and Felbrigg Park.  Twenty years ago they were excavating a mammoth from the crumbling cliffs at West Runton.  I wonder what happened to it?

I did  a walk along the North Norfolk Coast last year and,, despite being a committed North Pennine tussock-basher, I really enjoyed it. Beeston Bump is specially fab - done as the light faded... it's a real gem.....

Great write up  :)


I did a slightly longer version (by accident maybe, not design  :-[  ) back in early Summer and took in the delights of Incleborough Hill, Beacon Hill and the Roman Camp, the heathlands and Beeston Bump, followed by a walk back along the beach on possibly the hottest day of the year last year.


It is a fabulous and varied walk.


Thanks for posting  O0

Thanks all! I'm up in Norfolk fairly frequently to visit the kids so hopefully I'm going to get a few more in this year along the north coast. Beats sitting in the house watching them play on an Xbox all day (I wouldn't mind but they don't let me play  :-[ )
