Help connect Wymondham

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 Wymondham’s Slow Ways.

It's still got a few roads in but they were generally quieter lanes - noting we walked this on a Saturday spring afternoon so traffic may vary. It could be more direct in places but some of the roads in the area are quite busy and it makes it less pleasant to walk. Four stars as it was still road routes but some stretches were quite lovely including cottages , wildlife and the railway....

The route is mainly through fields however there are also some parts on the road and at one point you have to cross Norwich road which is quite a busy road. A few parts of the route were quite hidden...

Starting in the town centre, there are footpaths out of the town, with traffic lights to enable easy crossing of the main road on the edge of Wymondham. Soon after this, the walk then spent a long period of time on country roads, there was generally space if cars were coming, and the road was fairly quiet, so fairly easy to walk along. Shortly after that you come to a Waitrose supermarket and a pub, before following Newmarket Road into Norwich - where it meets the ring road there is a pedestrian crossing a short distance away to enable easy crossing of this busy road. - although a generally easy route to follow, there were overgrown footpaths at a number of points which wouldn't be easily accessible, and currently actual barriers across part of the footpath just outside Wymondham, suggesting that the path itself maybe shouldn't be used, and this was a slight challenge to navigate (and definitely not accessible for wheelchairs or pushchairs)...

I feel this offers a more attractive option for Wymmul than those which pass through Wreningham village as there is less road walking involved, but it does mean you don't pass a pub or other facilities en route....

These head from The Lizard down into the marshy nature reserve, then up onto a path along an old railway embankment, then down again into an overgrown field. The path through the Lizard nature reserve is a boardwalk across marshy ground. Newmarket Road into Norwich is a wide, shady path and cycle path beside the A11 past the biggest houses in Norwich....

It is slightly longer between Mulbarton and Wreningham than the other two slow ways for the same journey but the route is very pleasant. We took the slight detour suggested in the overview as it was not obvious if there was a right of way of any sort....

A lot of the route is the Kett's Country Walk, which isn't signposted. Though pleasant, the route meanders for the sake of it. Apart from the road from the A11 to Lotus Cars, most of the lanes around here are quiet enough for walkers....
