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.

This is a relatively scenic walk that mostly follows the Norfolk Coast Path.

This version of the route has a couple of unnecessary deviations off route to the villages of Stiffkey and Weybourne, which adds almost 2 miles to the total route). Both of these deviations included walking along the main road without a footpath. The walk up from Weybourne village to the mill, before you return back to the coast path, is especially dangerous as it's a relatively steep hill with a few turns; so cars may not see you. For the fastest (and safest) route, please see Welshe2.

I walked this over the course of 2 spring days (Wells to Blakeney then Blakeney to Sheringham) just after some rain. Total walking time was around 8 hours (including a couple of breaks).

Mostly well maintained paths for the majority but a couple of boggy bits between Wells and Blakeney. There's ~5 miles (if I remember the waymarked sign correctly!) of walking along a shingle ridge between Cley and Weybourne which definitely took its toll on my knees, and might not be great for pram pushers or wheelchair users. There's also a few points where you have to use stairs, there's no ramp alternative.

If you need to bail at any point during the walk there's a few decent options. The coast hopper bus which runs along the main road comes around once an hour in each direction and has lots of stops along the way. Weybourne car park and Blakeney bus shelter have public toilets, and most of the small towns have at least a cafe and a pub for stocking up if you need food, liquids or something warming.
