Holt to Sheringham

Allow about 5 hours for this 8 mile walk. After a short stretch of road walking at the start, the vast majority of the walk is offroad along rural footpaths. The walk is quite challenging with almost a mile of shingle bank plus a steep climb up to the coastguard lookout point on Skelding Hill near the end of the walk.

The linear walk explores many different aspects of the Norfolk landscape, from pine woods at the start in High Kelling to the fabulous Kelling Heath, then down to the coast through a wooded valley and grazing marshes behind the shingle bank before finishing with a cliff top walk.

Catch a bus or, for a real treat, a steam train from Sheringham to the start of the walk at High Kelling.
