Southrepps Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

Southrepps Common is an incredibly diverse and interesting area in Lower Southrepps, made up of several sites straddling Lower Street. With 160 plant species and a wide variety of bird species found across the Common, there’s much to look out for, including fragrant orchid, marsh helleborine, common cottongrass and bog bean. An extensive network of boardwalks allows you to enjoy the open expanse of reedbed and other wetland habitats on the eastern side plus woodland on the west. Take in the sights and sounds of the flora and fauna by pausing on one of the benches dotted around the sites.

The quiet lanes through Lower Southrepps are lined with pretty cottages. Away from the common, the walk follows lanes and peaceful field-edge footpaths between the northern and southern parts of Southrepps, passing Manor Farm’s 19th Century house and Barn. Though both are dated 1823, there’s evidence of older buildings having existed on the site since the medieval period.
