Time for some brac­ing sea air as Nor­folk Ram­blers take us on a walk at Sher­ing­ham

EDP Norfolk - - Art -

1From the boat­ing lake take the path be­side the golf course up to the look­out post on the top of the cliffs; you have views over (A) Sher­ing­ham and Wey­bourne. From here you head down to­wards Wey­bourne. Fol­low the path to a marker post, turn left cross­ing the North Nor­folk Rail­way. Be­fore the road turn right then left, cross­ing the road to en­ter Sher­ing­ham Park; fol­low the field edge and you will come to a seat (B) where there are steps up to the gazebo. There are great views to be had from it if you are feel­ing en­er­getic! Oth­er­wise carry on along the field edge path to a gate on your left; fol­low the path with views of Sher­ing­ham Hall on your left.

2If tak­ing the short walk go straight on to point (3). If do­ing the longer walk turn right fol­low­ing the path through the woods; fol­low the signs for the vis­i­tor cen­tre where there are toi­lets and re­fresh­ments and a gift shop. There is also an ex­hi­bi­tion of the his­tory of the park there. You then re­trace your steps back to the marker post to the right. When you reach the view­ing area head down the steps to the gate; you will see the gate to the Tem­ple – there are ex­cel­lent views from here. From the rear of the tem­ple head to­wards the fence at the back of the ho­tel down to the drive.

3Pass through the gate fol­low­ing the road to Up­per Sher­ing­ham; go through the vil­lage, pass­ing the church on your right, and at the sharp bend carry on ahead to Cran­field road. Go left at the finger post on to Butts Lane, fol­low to the end which brings you to the main A1082. Fol­low the road down to the round­about, walk down the main street to the sea front; turn left fol­low­ing the signs for the toi­lets and boat­ing lake from where you started.
