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.

I completed this walk in 2 phases. The first phase was absolutely lovely when I got off the main road onto the first country lane. The lane didn't have any signs or a road name so I just assumed I was going the right way. Once I continued, the walk took me down a track and then eventually onto small and very peaceful country lanes all the way to the Fir and Feathers pub at Woodbastwick. This was the end of phase 1 - where I enjoyed a well earned refreshing drink.
I think that if you could cut out the main road aspects and park close to that first country lane it would make the walk much more enjoyable. You don't really need to start the walk from Hoveton as this was just another main road walking passed all the residential houses and not particularly very interesting. All in all phase 1 was a pleasant quiet walk - the terrain was mainly flat walking on the quiet country roads, the country lane was a bit more rugged but not too bad.
The 2nd phase wasn't very good at all - mainly due to my own map reading skills. Unfortunately I got completely lost and ended up walking to Acle on the main busy road - not very safe at all. I think I may try and do this walk again in the future and plan my route a bit better ! :)
I would walk this again but try and avoid the main roads as they are not all particularly safe, with tiny or no paths at all. I'm not sure if the map was accurate but then I did get confused with my directions. When I do phase 2 again and get the directions correct I will post the info on here.
