Access For All Walks
This is a selection of walks which provide an opportunity for everyone from pushchair users to those with limited mobility to experience the wonderful diversity of the landscapes and wildlife of the Norfolk Coast AONB.
These routes are suitable for shortening or extending. While they have no formal disability audits, they have descriptions, images and information provided by the organisations who manage the site.
(The Norfolk Coast Partnership does not own or manage any property mentioned in these walks, but its member organisations who do can provide further information about their sites.)
Many of these walks are based on a guide produced in 2000 through National Lottery funding, entitled “Easy Access to the Norfolk Coast AONB – a guide to easily accessible countryside sites”.
With a diversity of user requirements in accessing the countryside, we have tried to adapt the information available to provide visitors to the countryside enough information to assess which areas of the site will be suitable to their individual needs.
