Details

This cycle starts from the market town of Dereham. From here the route heads north into the mid-Wensum Valley, along quiet country lanes which criss cross the old railway line. Here you will find the attractive villages of Elsing, Swanton Morley and North Elmham, where on the site of an earlier Saxon cathedral, stands the romantic ruins of an 11th C Norman chapel. Along this route you can see the healing well of St Withburga, discover the ancestral home of US President Abraham Lincoln and explore a restored Victorian railway station.
