This is a circular walk starting and ending at Cromer Railway station.
The route will take us from Cromer across the Norfolk countryside to Felbrigg Hall, a 17th centrury Grade I listed country house owned by the National Trust. Although there won't be time to walk round the house, the walk will pass through the grounds and we'll stop for a short time outside the main entrance.
From there we'll walk through the village of Aylmerton and up to Beeston Regis Heath. There is a viewpoint here that has views of nearby Sheringham, and on a clear day you can see right along the North Norfolk coastline.
We'll then walk through the wooded area of the heath along a ridge to an area known locally as the Roman Camp and nearby Beacon Hill, officially the highest point in Norfolk at a whopping 102m above sea level! From there, we'll drop down to the village of East Runton and follow the coastline back to the pier at Cromer.
At the end of the walk, we'll end up in one of Cromer's pubs for a drink.
