The Burnhams Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This is a 4.5 mile (7km) walk, which takes in salt marshes, St Mary's Friary and St Margaret's Church.


Until the end of the nineteenth century Burnham Overy Staithe was a thriving sea port serving the Burnhams and inland to the Creakes. Evidence of its sea trading past are still to be seen in the form of granaries and warehouses, many of which are now converted into houses.

The dunes along the coastline now form part of a National Nature Reserve and support a fragile community of plants.

This walk is accessible by public transport via the Coast Hopper bus service.
