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 walked this route in March, walking from Loddon to Great Yarmouth.
The route here starts right from where the bus stop is, and heads through the church yard before turning on to a narrow path. (There is another path here with a stile which was marked as closed, but that isn't where you need to go)
The path was quite muddy due to the weather, and that was common in a number of places for the first few miles.
Heading out of Loddon, there is a mix of walking on marked paths, and also on quiet country roads.
After taking a left on Norton Road and walking through a field (which was VERY muddy), you eventually reach a church, and once back on Norton Road, this is where the route splits from Lodgre One, which heads off in the direction of Reedham Ferry.
The next couple ofm iles or so was mostly walking on the road, but these were very quiet with not much traffic.
After going through Thurlton, and following Low Road, when you reach where the road turns right, you can carry on and there is a signposted footpath, with a stile to climb over. This path then follows alongside a small stream/ditch, and you can see in the distance the road bridge at St Olaves that will eventually be where you need to get to. The path ends up next to the railway line, and you turn right here and follow the path to the bridge (and under it) and you then have to walk on the other side to get up to where the bridge starts. At this point, you're alongside quite a busy road, but there are pavements to walk on.
However - as you leave St Olaves in the direction of Fritton, there is a short stretch about 200m long where there is just a small gravel path right next to the road - the speed limit at this part is 40mph, but could be a bit unsettling as the road is quite busy.
Soon after this point, there is a footpath which takes you slightly away from the road, eventually coming out in Fritton. (which was well signposted).
Once in Fritton, there is a left hand turn next to a closed Pub, and you follow this quiet road to the end, and then turn right. This part is quite wide, although still muddy, going past a holiday park and arriving at a golf course.
The path continues on between sections of the golf course, and again this was still muddy and rough.
Continuing to follow this path, you eventually arrive in Belton, which had a couple of pubs and shops. I did follow how this route has been mapped when it comes to the church, but you can actually walk through the church yard instead which brings you out at the same point instead of walking on the road.
From Belton onwards until the end, there is pavements alongside all of the roads that you need to walk, including alongside the road between Belton and Bradwell. Due to the rain, this road had accumulated a number of puddles and so there may be a risk of getting wet from vehicles at this point. (Spoken from my own experience!)
Once into Bradwell, this route navigates a number of residential streets before arriving at a roundabout with a Morrisons.
At this point, i would suggest trying to cross so that you end up on the LEFT hand side of the road, because as you follow Gapton Hall road, the path on the right hand side eventually comes to an end - due to traffic in this area, this can make it quite difficult to cross.
Shortly afer this you'll arrive at Gapton Hall Shopping area, and care needs to be taken when trying to cross this road - it can be very busy, with cars tailing back from the main junction, but then also trying to get in and out of the shopping area as well.
There are traffic lights to enable you to cross the A47 safely, and pavement all the way into Great Yarmouth from there, where there are many facilities/shops to choose from.
Overall, the walk felt safe to walk, and there were a couple of places on the route (Thurlton, St Olaves, Belton) where there were pubs, if you were going to break up the journey.
The only vaguely unsettling part was that shrot stretch between St Olaves and Fritton.
Once at Belton, the remainder of the walk did involve being alongside roads, some of which ended up quite busy, so a lot more noisy. I have previously walked the majority of the Lodgre One route, and I would consider that to be a more pleasant and scenic route, however this route is still fairly easy to walk.
