Honing Lock Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

The gates of Honing Lock were removed long ago, so you will hear the water gushing through, long before you see it. On a summer’s day, this man made waterfall, the dense vegetation and wild flowers that surround it could have you thinking you’ve stepped out of Norfolk and into a jungle. The lock now represents the head of navigation for the North Walsham and Dilham Canal, so along with the various fauna of the wet woodland and the cattle that graze the fields beyond, you’re likely to encounter cheery canoeists as you walk. 

The northern half of this walk follows the route of the former Midland and Great Northern Railway, another remnant of a more industrial past, which now forms part of the Weavers’ Way trail.
