    This riverside hike takes you to one of the last working windmills in England and affords classic Broads scenery.With 12 miles (19.3 km) of distance and almost no ascent or descent to mention, this should be an easy hike, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the national park. From Heigham Sound, you hike along the waterside to the River Thurne and follow it southwest. Before you reach the village of Thurne you arrive at Thurne Mill, a Norfolk landmark for 200 years and one of the last working windmills in England.The trail rejoins the river via South Oby Dyke and follows it to Acle Dyke, which you take into the village. Once in Acle, it is worth making a quick loop of the historic market town and paying a visit to nearby St Mary's Church, in Fishley, which has a pioneering 12th-century round tower.Acle has a range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
