Fabulous photos :)

Having walked and thoroughly enjoyed the Wessex Ridgeway I've had a hankering to follow the Ridgeway, Icknield, Peddars Ways ending with the Norfolk coast path -  just need to make that first step!

So many paths, so little time

Yes great photos, brought back many memories of my walk in 2014.  Highlight for me, apart from the walk, were the crab sandwiches in Cromer!

That looks like a very interesting walk with lots of scenery and history to explore. I was particularly drawn to the two tone cliffs. I have never seen anything like this before.

The cliffs are beautiful and quite high.  When I was there at the top of the cliff edge the Samaritans had many signs asking people to phone if they were depressed.  Regrettably, it looked like someone hadnít phoned as there were four bunches of flowers attached to the fence at one point. :(

Thank you for the lovely comments - Apart from the Peddars Way, The rest of the walk is served by an excellent bus service so even if you only have a spare day or two you can still explore some stunning areas of Norfolk!

That boardwalk by the river Thet was shin deep under water when I did it last year.  Had to take off shoes and socks and wade very carefully over slippery boards.
The stretch of coast from Hunstanton to Wells was breathtaking.  I had no idea it would be that good.
