A dramatic cliff face on Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path

New to the National Trail

2nd December 2014

A few words to introduce myself as the new National Trail Officer.

I have spent some time getting to know Norfolk’s National Trail, dare I say, not as much as I would like, as there has been non-stop activity regarding coastal access in the last few months.

I’ve cycled the Peddars Way in a day, just as the leaves were starting to fall which was fantastic and have walked many sections of the Norfolk Coast Path, which as a local I often visited as a child.

So I see myself as being extremely fortunate to now be working and legitimately being able to visit such beautiful places as are on the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path.

We held the first of Norfolk’s National Trail partnership group meetings on Monday, it was great to get so many interested parties around the table and build on development plans for the future. Exciting times!

The Sea Palling to Weybourne stretch of coastal access will be officially opened on the 12th December. It has taken a lot of work from Natural England, Norfolk County Council and local landowners and businesses to get it to this point. We envisage the next section from Hopton to Sea Palling to be opened within the year. This section of the England Coast Path and what we will know as the Norfolk Coast Path locally will be a tremendous asset to both highlighting Norfolk as a go-to county for great walking and for the local economy surrounding the trail.  

What is this section like? .......Why not come and find out for yourself?
