    Unique buildings combine with spectacular Norfolk countryside on this hike, which explores the glorious Blickling Estate.Whilst 14 miles (22.5 km) is fairly challenging, the amount of uphill and downhill is minimal, as per the entire trail, so might be easier than you anticipate.From Erpingham, the Way heads through farmland, crosses the River Bure and continues into Blickling Estate.Whilst here, it is worth a quick detour to take in the sights, including: the Mausoleum, a striking pyramid built in 1793; the Tower, a luxurious racecourse stand built in 1773; and Blickling Hall, a striking Jacobean mansion at the heart of the parkland. You leave the estate, walk through fields and skirt the northern edge of Aylsham, a historic town with plenty to tempt should you fancy refreshment.The trail crosses the River Bure for a second time and then follows a dismantled railway line to North Walsham, where this stage finishes.You find a range of accommodation, restaurants, pubs, cafes, shops, and other attractions in the market town.
