Ringstead Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This 7 mile (11km) circular walk takes you round the pretty Norfolk village of Ringstead and its surrounding countryside. It starts at the Gin Trap pub, where you can see a set of stocks, as a reminder of the days when offenders were punished by fellow villagers.

The walk then takes you out of the village and along the Peddars Way National Trail and past the Sedgeford borehole where local drinking water is drawn from the rock below.

Continuing round the walk, it passes Courtyard Farm, which is the home of conservationist, Lord Melchett. Circular walks have been created on the farm, showing the work that they do and the specially created wildlife habitats.

This walk then continues up and onto some quiet grassy tracks, with magnificent views over the coastline, before continuing down onto quiet country lanes and back into the village.
