Stalham, there is a lovely walk behind the wet shed at Richardsons.

Neatishead staithe a walk across from the staithe which wander in various directions

Head South, Worlingham & Barnby 24hr hour moorings and
then a walk up to the Barnby White Swan to what is
probably the country's finest fish restaurant! Miles of
wonderfully relaxing walking around and across the
marshes too.

As some replies have already indicated, it's actually a very good area of the Broads for waterside walks.

It comes as a shock to quite a few holidaymakers how there can often be an absence of waterside footpaths here, compared with the Canals. There is no obligatory towpath here, since trad propulsion was by Sailing Wherries, rather than horse drawn narrowboats.

On the Bure, there are very limited waterside walks from Wroxham or Belaugh, because of all of the private riverside property. The Bure Valley railway is an excellent long distance footpath though, and theres a short stretch along the river there with very good moorings by the railway bridge.

Worse still at Horning, very limited riverside footpaths, though there are a few nearby quiet lanes.

Things improve at Ludham Bridge on the Ant, where you can walk all the way up to just past How Hill on one side, and through to Neatishead on the other (partly across fields though).

The walk down alongside the Ant to St Benets is still blocked at the boatyard, and the much vaunted short alternative bypass path still hasn't materialised yet.

You can walk almost everywhere from there via very quiet and safe lanes though, through to Coldharbour on the Thurne, down to St Benets the long way via a farm track, and even round the banks of the Bure and Thurne from St Benets, past Thurne Mouth, opposite Thurne Mill, and right up into Ludham Village itself, partly by quiet roads.

Further up the Ant, things get tricky again, no waterside footpaths around Irstead or Barton Broad, other than the BA's circular Boardwalk at Turkey Broad.

Nothing really at Barton Turf, no distance paths at Sutton or Stalham other than up into the lanes again, away from the water.

A medium length boardwalk from Woodbastwick moorings opposite the Ferry Inn at Horning that goes to Cockshoot Broad, or a long walk down the lane to Woodbastwick village.


No other real riverside paths on the South Bank of the Bure till you get to Fleet Dyke, opposite the St Benets moorings. There's one there from Fleet Dyke to Upton Dyke, but moorings a now very limited.

All good advice so far.

I would say get yourself an OS map sheet 134 or the bigger equivalent.

River Ant

Ludham Bridge to How Hill on the new set-back river bank.  Dog Inn optional.

Barton Turf plenty of walks around quiet lanes but dog will need to be on lead.  However the lane to Neatishead has a permissive footpath down the field on the west side.

Neatishead as above.

Stalham, as stated there are plenty of paths behind Richardsons but it is a nature reserve at the bottom so exercise control.

River Bure

St Bennets as already stated.

South Walsham, from the BA mooring back along Fleet Dyke as far as you like - it goes all the way to Upton.

Ranworth Staithe, plenty of lanes for circular walks or from the moorings turn left (east) down the lane behind the shop for about 5 to 10 minutes then turn right (south on the path through the fields until you meet the road to South Walsham, turn right and follow the road back to the Staithe.

There are loads of good walks from all the Ludham moorings (well- not Womack Island). You can see some here: http://www.ludhamarchive.org.uk/windex.htm

If you send me a PM with your e-mail address, I can send you a copy of our booklet "Waterside Walks"

To add a couple more...

Gays Staithe, walk up the lane, past the bins, right then left, 50 yards on left are some loos, and through this area, bearing left follow the field track, then bear to right at the road, then 1/2 mile on the left is the Barton Broad Board walk.

Cockshoot  dyke, between Horning and Wroxham, you have the board walk around Cock shoot Broad and the other way, along side the river then take the often flooded lane, and you can eventually get to the Fur and Feathers.

Hope this helps.



best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.
