On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Holme-next-the-Sea to Brancaster

Holme means dry ground in marsh or water meadow and the pretty little village of Holme-next-the-Sea is located within the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a lovely place to start your walk! The Peddars Way, which starts near Thetford and joins the coast path at Holme, is one of the most substantial and best preserved of Norfolk’s Roman roads. It is possible that a Roman ferry went across the wash to Lincolnshire from this point. As you follow the boardwalk through the Holme Dunes reserve the beach to your left is where the 4000 year old timber circle was discovered. It is now in King’s Lynn museum. The coast path diverts inland at Thornham to avoid the sluice but the views coming into Brancaster are well worth slight diversion!
