This was a lovely walk by the river and Marriott's way, the team completed a litter pick....
If you're going from Taverham to Reepham then Whitwell Station is a good stop near the end for food/drink (you can't miss it) or there's a shop and a pub in Lenwade which is about halfway through the route....
The only actual problem I had was that there's no access through from Duke Street to St George's Street in the way the map suggests as it's been blocked off by university buildings now. Instead, I walked back on to Duke Street and walked along Colegate instead, to then turn right onto St George's Street....
Almost the entire route is along the Marriotts Way so level, plenty of cyclists and dog walkers....
I really liked this route, as a walker I followed the route as suggested however there is a more direct route with less elevation which follows the river from the station to the start of the Marriott's Way....

I cycled this route rather than on foot, most of the route is a cycle path so do be mindful of this when walking although as it is so wide it is lower risk. There are lots of opportunities to view the river and the path is flat except for one section at the end opposite the station which requires a few steps....
As the path approaches Drayton, the cycle route signs indicate a left turn. As the path approaches Drayton, the cycle route signs indicate a right turn....
There are nicer ways through Norwich from the station to the beginning of Marriot's way near the St Crispin's roundabout. One way goes through the cathedral grounds and then along the river all the way to the roundabout, where it joins Marriot's way. Another option would be to follow the river entirely from the train station (turn right by the Compleat Angler pub over the bridge, go down the stairs and follow the river)....
Don't know how to edit a review, wanted to rate 4* for the rest of the route which is really nice....
A much easier and safer route from Taverham would be following the Marriott's Way to Lenwade and then taking the Wensum Way to Elsing. From Elsing you can take the quiet lane to Etling Green and take the path this route suggests into Dereham....
Secondly, i would avoid the Longwater junction by taking the road from Bawburgh to Bowthorpe that goes under the A47....
