Help connect Loddon

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 Loddon’s Slow Ways.

As others have said, the section from Walsh lane to Bungay road wasn't clearly a footpath, so you might want to carry on up the road and take the left onto honeypot lane instead....

Walk this route

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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....

The next drawn offroad section from Ingloss (Lugs) Lane to Bungay Road (that goes through Broome House Farm) is similarly private access, but there are two different public footpaths on Ingloss (Lugs) Lane, one just to the left of the vehicular access to the water tower (which is narrower), which is 1.2km south of where the previous amendment to Pound Lane comes out onto Ingloss Lane. The other is opposite where the drawn Pound Lane-Ingloss Lane section comes out and is a further 350 metres down Ingloss Lane from the water tower....

This route is mostly off-road and two thirds follows dyke paths alongside rivers and breydon water. The route follows the Wherryman's Way and is clearly signposted for the majority of the route. It's a lovely route for wildlife and wide open skies and is great on the right day....

Walk this route

A lot of walking along roads which are quite busy as they are the route to/from Reedham car ferry. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be much of an alternative which, considering how rural the area is, is very disappointing...

RobHNorfolk

Walk this route

Easy Countryside walking with a high proportion on paths through typical Norfolk landscape. The only downside is a few hundred yards of walk on a very narrow lane toward Mulbarton. This section is unpleasant though not particularly dangerous as traffic is slow moving....

However, Stoke Lane from the A140 to Stoke Mill is a rat run with too many cars driving quickly, Wash Lane from Poringland to Alpington is deeply rutted and Anglia Water have signs up at Wood Farm denying access from the A146 to Sisland Carr ( the gate was open but query whether that would be the case at the weekend?)...
