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.

A good route along the coastal path, but the section from Holt to Weybourne is along unpaved country roads and may be dangerous at times.

This is quite a difficult SlowWay to pigeonhole, it is by turns exhilarating and uncomfortable. There are sections on road, many pinch points, kissing gates and a shingle beach to navigate. I marked it down to 3 stars owing to the long section on road at the start, but there are also some wonderful offroad sections with great cliff top views.

Holt is a lovely Norfolk town with plenty of shops, tea rooms and a supermarket. It is served by bus routes and the privately run North Norfolk Railway.

The first 2.9m of the SlowWay is on country roads without any footpath, except within Holt itself. At Kelling, the road joins the A149 and at this point there is a very welcome tea room. From here the trail follows a bridleway to the Quag where it turns right onto a much narrower track and ultimately ends up joining the Norfolk Coast Path at Kelling Hard.

Here the trail follows the top of a shingle bank forming Kelling beach. After about ½ mile, the trail rises away from the beach to a cliff top path, which is rough and undulating with occasional pinch points. The cliffs are fragile and prone to erosion so follow any warnings.

At Weybourne beach car park the SlowWay turns away from the coast path into Weybourne on a well prepared path. Here there is another tea room and an Augustinian priory. The path joins the main A149 road which is very busy and narrow here. Weybourne has almost no footpaths alongside the main road. At the windmill, turn left down a byway to rejoin the Norfolk Coast Path at houses near the cliff top.

An alternative route to avoid Weybourne is to continue following the Norfolk Coast Path from the car park directly to the houses mentioned above, where there is kissing gate.

Turning on to Norfolk Coast Path at the houses there is another kissing gate. From here the trail continues along the cliff top with a couple of pinch points and two stiff climbs. Sheringham golf course is to the right and the path shares some of its land. The second climb arrives at a Coastguard lookout, and Sheringham lies ahead.

On arrival in Sheringham, there is a long flight of steps down to the western promenade which can be avoided by going into the town by road. Then up through the busy streets to the railway station which also doubles as a bus station. Crab sandwich anyone?.
