Knettishall Heath to Little Cressingham

The Peddars Way forms half of the 92 Mile Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail which I will be walking in sections over the coming months.


The very start of the National Trail is also the end of several other Long Distance Trails.

Thats the way to go... 46 Miles to the coast.


The trail through the woodland at the start.


Crossing the Little Ouse into Norfolk.

Turn your head to the left and its an arm, pointing to the sky.

The second river encounter. This is the River Thet.

Plenty of National Trail Markers.

Just crossed the A47 which is a dual carriagway - Take extra care!

Remains of the old railway at Stonebridge - the first settlement on thr route.

An old mill at Stonebridge.


Almost half way along todays part of the trail. For an opening day the route is simple to follow but quite a long walk at 15 miles.


One of a series of poems written on stone along the trail to the coast.

Thompson Water nature reserve.

Another of the poems.

Fields of yellow in full bloom.

The ruined church in Little Cressingham at the end of the day and interesting to explore.

Taking a little detour to visit Little Cressingham Mill.
