Details

Pace:
Expect quite a few short stops and a leisurely pace. We'll make sure nobody is left behind. Walk is beginner friendly.

How to prepare:
Make sure you grab a snack or two for a short break and something to drink. Footpaths on our route are well maintained but there is a bit of brambles overhanging and nettles here and there so I recommend longer trousers . In case of wet weather we can encounter a lot of mud so I recommend good footwear. Poncho or waterproof jacket handy is always a good idea.

Meet at 2 The Esplanade, Sheringham NR26 8LG ; 11 am, next to the Boating Lake

SHERINGHAM TO WEST RUNTON

The route follows the wide promenade east of the town. Don't miss the slightly hidden turn up the steps to reach the cliff top above. Here you'll find the path and steps up to Beeston Bump. The bump is actually a kame – an ice-giant's pocketful of sand and gravel left behind when the glaciers retreated. The route drops down from the hill by more steps and wends its way along the top of the cliffs, on a relatively flat, grassy path past fields and caravan parks all the way to West Runton Gap. Here, you'll find a beach and café (open mid-March to October).

WEST RUNTON TO EAST RUNTON

Just south of West Runton Gap slipway, following the clifftop edge and in places detours around small sections already lost to the beach. At Woodhill Park caravan site, the path diverts inland, across a wildflower meadow. Once through the park the route runs beside the main A149 through East Runton village, where this section ends.

East Runton to Beeston Regis and then back to Sheringham

After East Runton we'll head more inland and back trough Beeston Regis one of the more hilly regions of Norfolk passing trough Incleborough Hill and Beacon Hill we'll make our way back to Sheringham for some warm coffe/tea and cake.
