Cycle Route

The Lost Villages of Breckland

The Lost Villages of Breckland

Details

This cycle ride starts from the village of Gressenhall, where a former 18th C workhouse depicts rural life through the ages. From here the route heads north through attractive countryside and villages to the untouched valley of the River Nar, representing old Norfolk at its best. In between lie the abandoned medieval hamlets of Little Bittering and Godwick, where the church ruins stand as a timely reminder. Along this route you can stroll amongst the earthworks of a lost village, explore a Saxon church's round tower and discover a memorial to a champion boxer.

Cycle Route: Gressenhall-Bittering-Stanfield-Whissonsett-Godwick-Tittleshall-Litcham-East Lexham-Great Dunham-Beeston-Longham
