|Norfolk, Norfolk Broads|
|A circular level walk through countryside, alongside the miniature Bure Valley Railway where if you are lucky a steam train will pass, plus field tracks and riverside paths. The walk starts from the river moorings if you are travelling by boat, but there is also parking in the road alongside for those arriving by car.|
By river head upstream through Wroxham and Belaugh to public moorings on Coltilshall Common.
|Start to Railway Bridge|
Start point: 52.7281 lat, 1.3708 long
The path starts on the opposite side of the road to the Kings Head pub. Follow this path until it emerges out onto a road. Keep straight on along the road until you reach the railway bridge, go up the steps on the left to the path and turn right.
|Railway Bridge to Steps|
Start point: 52.734 lat, 1.3756 long
Keep on the path alongside of the railway, you maybe lucky and have a steam train pass (summer only). At the road cross over through the gate and continue until you reach the steps on the Right.
|Steps to Hedge Gap|
Start point: 52.7268 lat, 1.4006 long
Go down the steps and go straight on for a short distance, then bear right to follow hedge-side path. When you reach the boundary hedge, Turn Right and after a short distance you will see a small sign pointing to your left, go left through the gap in the hedge here. Note: take care as you can easily miss this turn.
|Hedge Gap to Main Road|
Start point: 52.7224 lat, 1.4009 long
Travel straight on until you reach the hedge boundary to the main road. You can either get onto the road and turn right (this road is busy and narrow here so be careful if you choose this option) or turn right and carry on beside the hedge (with the road running to your left) until you see the road junction sign posted Belaugh, across the road.
|Main Road to Footpath|
Start point: 52.7193 lat, 1.3936 long
Cross over the road to turn left down the road signed to Belaugh. Follow road to Belaugh, do not take the first right, but carry on until you see a small green with footpath sign pointing to your right.
|Footpath to Stile|
Start point: 52.7162 lat, 1.3891 long
Turn right onto this footpath and proceed down this path until you reach the village road, then turn right. Proceed along the road passing the village staith and boat yard, and at the bend in the road pass over the stile to the left.
|Stile to End|
Start point: 52.7172 lat, 1.3867 long
Walk straight ahead, this section is like walking through a private garden but keep straight on, until you reach another gate stile. Pass through and keep straight on passing buildings on the right to reach another gate. Pass through and carry on across the field to another gate which leads across more fields. Pass over a stile at the start of the village and keep straight on until you reach the common. At the far end of the common you will find the river moorings and the pub car park where the walk began.

A good varied walk, but closer to 4 miles than 5.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
