Cycle Route:Paston Way Cycle Route

Cycle Route

In light of COVID-19, please make sure you check with your travel and accommodation providers before travelling.


Short but sweet, this one mile of former railway line runs from the edge of North Walsham almost to the hamlet of Knapton, for an easy road link to Mundesley on the coast. The surface is firm but there are steep access steps, which means carrying your bike. Please note that the full length of the Paston Way runs for eight miles from North Walsham to Cromer, but it is only lawful to ride on the old railway section. Where the rest of the route is off-road, it is footpath only.

OS Landranger 133 North East Norfolk, Cromer & Wroxham.

Easy, except for the steep access steps.

Links: the Paston Way links with the Quiet Lanes, and is a short ride across North Walsham to the Weavers' Way.
