A St Bo­tolph’s Church, Trunch, is well-known for its su­perb acous­tics. There is a me­mo­rial stone to Nel­son’s daugh­ter, Ho­ra­tia, and beau­ti­ful carved me­dieval mercy seats and pew ends.


Some of this walk is on the 22-mile Pas­ton Way which passes through the Pop­py­land of north east Nor­folk, tak­ing in me­dieval churches, pretty vil­lages, rolling farm­land, dis­used rail­ways and beach walks. This is an un­usual walk in that it has many spurs to take you to all the churches in the area. nor­folk.gov.uk/out-and­about-in-nor­folk/nor­folk-trails
