Hi we were thinking of going down to South Walsham this weekend and just wondered if there are any moorings there. We don't mind if we have to mud weight but would rather get off the boat if we can. I've had a look on the net and think its called 'fleet dyke' Its been such a long time since I've been there can anyone tell me if we can moor and can we walk anywhere from there?  I can see there are some pubs in South Walsham and although we are not desperate for the pub it is nice to be able to walk somewhere in the evening.  With that in mind, if we can walk there does anyone know how far it is/ how long it takes?

Thanks

Hi there are plenty of formal moorings at the bottom of Fleet dyke. The village and pubs are about a twenty minute walk from the moorings, you can also have a chinese take away delivered to the moorings as well, there are usually menus at the start of the walk to the village. You can walk for miles from the moorings, back up Fleet dyke down the bure to Upton and back around to South Walsham if your feeling that energetic. Have a good holiday.

I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

20 mins? I must walk much slower than you then Gaz! took me and nephew about an hour last time, though he is a bit of a chatterbox and likes to look at stuff as we go along Smile

Is that going along the lane, past the back of the private moorings, staithe and houses then round a sharp right. Then right just after Charity Barn and across the field? Then right onto School Lane, turn right at end and walk up the main street past the church?

If there's a quicker way I need to know!

Ta v much, Karen

Hi karen yes perhaps I was a bit optimistic with twenty minutes, depends how desperate you are for a pint or the loo lol. I think thirty mins should nail it, a pleasant walk on a nice evening with some nice properties to look at and dream about Smile  Dont forget ive seen the speed you walk especially when carrying a drink (well you wouldnt want to spill any would you now) Evil Grin

Thanks for that guys, it's just sometimes you can't actually get off and onto a road.  I just couldn't remember what is was like there so will hopefully get down that way at the weekend.  Should enjoy the walk to the pub too!  Smile

Thanks again

If you're towing a dinghy you can mudweight in the broad, row to the staithe and moor it there. Cuts a few minutes from the walk to the pubs.

The Tour Norfolk website has an excellent page about South Walsham including suggested walking routes and a map. The footpath across the field is not marked on the map but can clearly be seen between Wymers Lane and School Road.

The route Karen has just outlined is the one we took last week.  A nice walk, but a bit long just for a nip to the shop.  If I recall the shop/post office was shut on the afternoon we were there although a pint in the pub offset the disapointment!!!

The Ship is an excellent pub with food to die for. On route you will pass the Fairhaven Gardens, this is well worth a visit with gardens down to South Walsham inner broad.

Thanks again everyone, I'm sure I've been there a hundred times (but not for a while) but just couldn't remember it! We tend to spend weekends around Barton as we usually only have Saturday night on the boat, but have more time this weekend! Might even be coming up tomorrow afternoon if we're lucky so can venture a bit further. If we can get a space on the moorings we will defiantly go for  walk to the pub Smile   Thanks again for all your help  Smile
