West Harling Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This 5 mile (8km) walk follows mainly footpaths in the sandy Brecks area, once characterised by open windblown areas now typically planted with pine woodland following World War One.

Archaeological features abound on this walk:  the campsite at Thorpe Woodlands was the site of a mediaeval settlement until the early eighteenth century; the Peddars Way shows one of the best examples of 'agger' (the raised embankment which supported the Roman Road) can be seen; at West Harling Heath, Bronze Age burial grounds or tumuli can be seen.
