Norfolk Walking Festival: 17th October to 1st November

16th September 2015

Autumn is fast approaching, the leaves are subtly beginning to change colour and just as the grass dries from the morning dew, evening begins and it starts to damp down again, perfect for mushrooms!

This Autumn with thanks to Coastal Communities funding and the vast support of the Trail’s stakeholders and communities local to the trail, we are co-ordinating our first ever walking festival. The festival is to be based in North-east Norfolk and is to highlight the excellent walking opportunities afforded by the newest section of the Norfolk Coast Path, from Weybourne to Sea Palling.

It will run for two weeks from Saturday, 17th October until Sunday, 1st November and incorporates some 45+ events, consisting of both walks and talks relating to why this area of the coast is so special.

There have been archaeological finds of world-wide significance in the area of the England Coast path, ranging from the oldest footprints found this side of Africa to the West Runton elephant, all of which will be explained by the eminent Dr Nick Ashton from the British museum who will be giving a lecture on the first evening of the festival.

Join a guided visit around Happisburgh including a tour of the iconic lighthouse, or try beer tasting and foraging with local micro brewer and geology expert Martin Warren. Former trail manager of 30 years, Tim Lidstone-Scott will be explaining the ins and outs of the Norfolk Coast Path and why it is such a special place to explore.

There is a lot to discover, visit the festival website to find out what, where and when and to book your place: www.norfolkwalkingfestival.co.uk
