Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

An enjoyable walk, taking in lots of countryside between Caister and Acle, working through Filby at the half way point, before then travelling the path alongside the Muck Fleet waterway, with some lovely views on offer.
Coming from Caister > Acle direction, there was a footbridge over the dual carriage way with a number of steps on either side, as well as then walking off road on fields (through well marked paths), but 1 or 2 gates. One of these was not in place though on the day I walked (photo included).
Shortly after leaving Filby and going through a caravan park, there was a small wooden bridge to cross a small stream, with a step at the other end, also included in the photos, and also a stile to cross.
Approaching Acle, as has been mentioned in other reviews, there is a section of 200m or so that involves walking alongside the main road, which is national speed limit at that point. This was unsettling, especially as at one point a bush was overgrown which meant walking on the road, so walkers need to take care.
Just before arriving in Acle, the footpath also went through a VERY narrow gate which felt like could be a problem for wheelchairs/pushchairs.
Both Caister and Acle had different facilities and bus conenctions, with a short walk to Acle railway station also available.

Lovely pleasant walk with just the one stretch that makes it a 4 not a 5. This is just after Acle bridge if walking towards Caister where it's on the A1064 with a wide verge ( if you cross over on top of the bridge) but it doesn't stop it being a little unsettling as people drive past at the limit. Nearly saw a collision at the road junction the walk turns down. That aside Acle to Filby is mostly typical broads paths - on banks between waterways and dykes, marsh and fields around. Most paths are broad but there are a few exceptions towards Acle where there is also a narrow fence hole to pass through. That could be avoided if took the path along the road to Acle Bridge. Not a lot of shelter if the weather is too sunny/cold/rainy/windy. Filby to Caister is more edge of field path (some a little crowded with plants) - some very narrow and where they cut through the fields they are well worn by use. There is a stretch near Mautby that is boggy even after a week of dry weather.There is a stile in Fleggburgh that could be avoided if took the road route (same distance). Plenty of nature - hares, buzzards, deer, pheasant, partridges,skylarks and butterflies.It winds down some nice lanes with pretty houses and some Norfolk flint churches. Toilets at the start and end along with pubs - half way through there is Filby bridge restaurant and the Filby village shop which has a lot of picnic options. We have walked parts of this many times so would definitely recommend.

Great route. One short section on busy A1064 which is unavoidable.

Beautiful easy walk along country paths with only a few hundred yards near Acle Bridge along very busy road where caution needs to be exercised. Great views over the marshes.
