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 Wells-next-the-Sea’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

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). 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....

We are relatively fit walkers but were very glad we decided to split the route in two, as especially tackling that stony beach stretch towards the end of the second day would be challenging especially if it had come after about 15 miles of walking - so probably only the keenest walkers would attempt the full almost 20 miles in one day....
