Dan Hobson planned a hike.
March 26, 2020
This first stage leads you from the golden coastline at Cromer Pier into a glorious Jacobean country estate.With minimal uphill or downhill, the 11.8 miles (19 km) on this hike should feel leisurely enough, which allows time to explore.From the Grade II-listed pier, the trail climbs gently to the Cromer Ridge and into Felbrigg Park. Here, it is worth visiting the medieval St Margaret's Church and Felbrigg Hall, a stunning 17th-century manor house.You leave the parkland after Felbrigg Pond and continue past Lower Gresham, through Sustead, and over Hanworth Common to Aldborough.The trail continues through large arable fields separated by hedgerows and small woodlands to finish in the village of Erpingham.There are a couple of places to stay and a pub that serves food in Erpingham, as well as other accommodation options nearby.
