We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks

more walks and reviews are needed to fully connect Cromer to the verified network. Can you give a hike and help?

Slow Ways linking Cromer and Aylsham, North Walsham, Sheringham, Stalham

Great Britain / Norfolk / Cromer

Cromer’s four Slow Ways are 44% checked

Drawn: 4/4
reviewed: 2/4
verified: 1/4
and surveyed: 0/4

Help connect Cromer

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 Cromer’s Slow Ways.

A tidy of the Cromer end as the automapping went a little wild! Review for SHECRO Two still applicable....

Walk this route

Rerouted walk uses much of the Norfolk Coastal Path, and as such is a route for foot only, as cyclists are not able to use the footpath, and gates and steps, especially on Beeston Bump, excludes wheelchairs, except for near Cromer. That said, it's a very enjoyable coastal route, with some necessary diversions inland and along paved roads where the old route has fallen into the sea! Good amenities and transport links at both ends, and a store at West Runton halfway through....

Walk this route

Not sure how this route was verified, as chunks of it are unachievable due to coastal erosion, leading to footpaths vanishing....

Hiking Historian

Walk this route

This route would be fine if it followed the waymarked coastal footpath but currently tries to take you across a closed clifftop footpath that is either impossible or dangerous to follow around East Runton. At low tide an alternative is to walk from Sheringham to Cromer along the beach...


Walk this route

This route mostly traces the Aylsham-Cromer section of the Weavers' Way long-distance path, and so it is a reliable path....


Walk this route

Great coastal route, tough going in places as steep steps up Beeston Bump but spectacular views all the way....


Walk this route

Follow the promenade east past a first row of beach huts, to find a steep set of 59 steps to the right and a ramp leading uphill to the Norfolk Coast Path and cliff top. Follow the coast path, passing a couple of caravan parks, with one awkward pinch point to arrive at West Runton. So follow the Norfolk Coast Path along the A149 through East Runton village and onwards. After East Runton, the Norfolk Coast Path takes a rather artificial route through yet another caravan park and across an open area which doubles as a car park and picnic area....

Black Squirrel

Walk this route

Picturesque enough, especially when going over the "bump" but later stages traverse a succession of caravan/camping sites, which is less interesting, and feels slightly intrusive. Path is generally good, being a mix of hard standing, trail, and grass, but a steep set of steps going up the bump renders it inaccessible to buggies and wheelchairs....
