Slow Ways linking Aylsham and Cromer, Holt, Horsham St Faith, Hoveton, North Walsham, Reepham, Sheringham, Taverham

Aylsham’s eight Slow Ways are 50% checked

Help connect Aylsham

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Aylsham’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

Only parts of the path are paved, with most of the path going along uneven and potentially muddy ground, so it's suitable for walking but would be difficult to wheel this route. The route extends beyond the Weavers' Way car park once you get into North Walsham, and this section of the route is paved and easy to access....

During the walk we saw a single cyclist and a few dog walkers, although as you're able to join the route at various stages, I suspect they didn't cycle / walk the full 9 miles (18 if returning!) - unfortunately the train wasn't running on the day we walked and so we had to plan who drove to Wroxham / Alysham and who would drive each other back - none of us fancied the return 9 miles....

I walked this route in September 2023, from Horsham St Faith towards Aylsham. The walk through Horsham St Faith was quiet, and not much traffic at all, before going down a quiet road and joining a footpath, this was a bit overgrown but still able to walk through fine. You then arrive in Newton St Faith, and from here there is a long stretch of walking along a road, which was not busy, however the first part when leaving Newton St. All in all, a pleasant route to walk, although the long stretch of road between Newton St Faith and Hainford (particularly the couple of corners) would be something that would need to take care with (and the reason for 4* instead of 5)....

The route includes a mixture of public footpaths, restricted byways, bridleways, fields, through national trust parks and walking along the road (both quiet country roads and slightly busier main roads). There were several kissing gates and stiles on the route and one small steep set of stairs needed to access the public footpath/field near Marlpit Road....

Great walking route but it would be tough for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Uneven, gravel walkaways would make wheeling hard work. Pathways are narrow in places and some exits off the route are steps only....
