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...

Our first walk in the month of June will start at the Ken Hill car park, Snettisham, which is just off Beach Road, not far from the A149 junction. John Ross will lead us through the woods and down to the coast and back. Wednesday 14th June 2.00pm.

Later in the month our boots will be treading the paths that lead from Ringstead down to Holme and back. A circular walk starting from Green Bank, which is a farm track on the right just out of Ringstead on the road that leads down to Holme. Led by Steve and Lindsey Davis the walk is at 2.00pm on Wednesday 28th June.

Further ahead, in July, the walking group will visit the grounds of Holkham Hall, for a picturesque walk round the many paths there. Tony Bubb will lead the walk and has suggested that there may be a tea shop stop available at the end! Meet at the free Holkham car park at 2.00pm on Wednesday 12th July.

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 summer walks programme. Look forward to seeing you with your boots on!
