5th Feb NORFOLK NORDIC WALKING NEWS
SPRING is allegedly springing! Ask any Norfolk Nordic Walker where we have seen the signs and you may find a range of replies greet you! We hunted at Blickling Hall this week and found a pesky bunch of lack-lustre snowdrops lurking near a barbed wire fence. Photo opportunity it certainly was not! At the UEA, we definitely found no ‘snow bells’ but whose to say they were not having an identity crisis? Nothing springing as yet at High Ash Farm or the Roman Town, but Marriott’s Way harboured one or two early signs of life. So our predictions are, this will be the week when Norfolk springs into action! We’ll keep you posted on Facebook for evidence!
Come along for our Saturday Adventure walks and enjoy lively company, good chat, fabulous views and a few new secret locations thrown into the mix! So far in 2018 we’ve meandered through the Yare Valley, explored the Marriott’s Way, embraced new trails at High Ash Farm and encountered mud galore between Blofield and Brundall! We’ve met up with the Weaver’s Way, taken the roads less travelled between Blickling and Aylsham and … got slightly more used to a welcome brew of Camomile Tea if a cafe is not nearby!
So many fabulous new routes and trails to explore (especially as mud will soon cease to be such an issue) that will literally take us from coast to broads, woodland to rivers. Be part of the adventure…
Always fun to end in a pub on a Saturday walk – Why not?
24th February Bramerton Water’s Edge 10.30am Riverside and Trail walk. BOOK FAST TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT!
NEW WEEKLY WALKS…
Why not KICK START the week at Whitlingham – Monday at 9.30am is the place to be! Can’t make that slot? Join us on Tuesday at 10.30am as we take our pick of broad or woodland trails….
Enjoy a motivating workout walk? Tuesday at 1.15pm will sort the huff from the puff on the UEA meadows and woods. Burn calories FAST!
We are LOVING the Blickling Hall / Estate / Lake walks which come rain or shine are most definitely a Wednesday mid-week treat. It would seem that regardless of how many cars are in the car park, once we are striding out with our poles, we are the only walkers on the estate. We have seen mist rising up from the lake and bathing the hall itself in an eerie yet still surreal light. This week we will be exploring turrets, towers and pyramids …
Please note, there is no Saturday walk on Saturday 10th February, however there will be a Sunday Adventure on 11th February instead from UEA to Earlham Park/Hall via the marshes!
Also instead of a Saturday walk on 17th February, there will be a North Norfolk Exploring the Burnhams Walk at 10am on Sunday 18th February instead.
NEW – WELL BEING WALKS

Starting Thursday 22nd February at 1. 30pm in Eaton Park. Feel fitter at your pace…
RUSHED OFF YOUR FEET? SQUEEZE IN SOME ‘YOU’ TIME…
Quick fix at Dussindale Park on Monday with our Lunchtime Livener at 12.15pm. Walk at your own pace, take it in your stride and by 1.15pm you will feel energised and ready for anything!
HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED WHEN THE WEATHER IS DULL AND WET AGAIN (and again…?)
Book a class!
Sometimes you have to set that Nordic walking session in stone to keep your progress on track. By booking your walks in advance, you drastically reduce the chances of bailing on your winter exercise plan.
Knowing that you have booked in for an hour’s vigorous exercise is often enough of a motivator to ensure you don’t miss out. If you find yourself doing less and less exercise as the weather gets colder, then maybe it’s time you booked a block of walks to blitz your way through the winter. The clouds do pass!
THE FEBRUARY SHOP N DROP BOX AWAITS…
