Dersingham Walking Group ...

The Dersingham Walking Group was founded in 2005 to provide people from the village with the opportunity to enjoy guided country walks in the area. There is at least one walk each month, often two, usually on the second Wednesday, with full details given in Village Voice and on this website. Each walk has a leader and is usually between 4 and 5 easy miles taking a couple of hours or so. Why not get some fresh air, exercise and enjoy our wonderful countryside, you'll be in good company!

Our Next Walks...

Firstly, a reminder that from now until the middle of January, our start time will move to 1.30pm, so that we make the most of the available daylight.

On Wednesday 13th December, at 1.30pm we will meet outside the front of Sandringham Visitor Centre, from where I will lead a walk through the woods, crossing the A149 and circling round Wolferton woods and back to Sandringham. It's a lovely walk and the Visitor Centre cafe awaits you, if you wish, at the end! About 5 miles of easy walking, no stiles.

As usual on Boxing Day, Tony Bubb will lead a morning walk to freshen you up after the indulgences of Christmas Day! 10.30am meeting in the car park at the Snettisham Beach fish and chip shop.

We open the New Year of walking with a tour round the various different landscapes of our own village of Dersingham. Meet at 1.30pm on Wednesday 10th January, by the old Dersingham railways station at the bottom of Station Rd. I shall be leading this one, and can promise you quite a few different views of the village.

Country walking is a real joy, and it's good for you ...

There's nothing like a good country walk to both relax and energise you at the same time. It's a real pleasure to just be out in the fresh air, and the health benefits are well known. Fortunately in Dersingham we have nearby access to some of the best country and coast walking in East Anglia, with many excellent routes starting right in the village.

The Dersingham Walking Group has a team of experienced leaders one of whom guides each of our walks. We are always looking to expand the number of leaders, so if you would like to join us please get in touch. Training is provided and we can also suggest suitable walks if necessary.

Speaking of walking routes, Cliff Jordan runs an excellent website called Whiffler's Walks which catalogues a large number of local walks. You can find a link to Cliff's website below and also a link to a printable version of our forthcoming walks programme. Look forward to seeing you with your boots on!
