Sunday 30th July - Langley Marshes - 12 miles

Post by Banialuki » Tue Jul 25, 2017 1:53 pm

Hello there Ramblers ! Another exciting walk coming up this time we will explore the beauty of the broads, walking along the river Yare to see the splendour of Langley and Hardley Marshes. Stroll trough a part of Wherryman's Way where we'll get to see beautifully restored Hardley windmill, nice stop for lunch, and then pass trough 15th century boundary cross just on the bank of River Yare as well as impressive Hardley Hall. After that we will finish in beautiful village of Loddon where we'll find an abundance of cafes and pubs to choose from and reward ourselves for well walked miles.

There is a good chance that the Hardley Windmill will be opened for touring, if so, tickets are 3£ per person, and it is a great opportunity to see a working windmill from inside, there is also a great view of the broads from the top ! If opened, the windmill can also provide hot drinks and cakes!

Start: 10:30 am
Start from : Chet stores car park, Chetgrave
1-3 Hardley Rd, Chedgrave, Norwich NR14 6HG


Car park is free, and the stores there will be opened for a very short time or closed on Sunday so shouldn't be a problem parking there. I'll find out more on Wednesday so stand by for additional info. Alternatively, there is Church car park about 15 min walk from the spot 1 High St, Loddon, Norwich NR14 6ET, however there is a parking fee there.

Walk is approx. 12 miles. We will walk at a medium pace of about 2.5-3.5 miles per hour, but don't worry to much, pace will be adjusted to the slowest person so that nobody will be left behind.
Make sure you bring some snacks and drink as the walk will take approx 4:30 h and will burn plenty of calories ! Good walking shoes and waterproofs are a must, gaiters aren't a bad idea as well as the grass along the path might be high enough to soak your shoes from the top if it gets wet.

Here is the link to the walk I based our walk on,it will be slightly adjusted :
