Peddars Way

This 46 mile National Trail follows the route of a Roman road between Knettishall Heath on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and the North Norfolk coast near Hunstanton.

From the wooded, sandy Breckland heaths at Knettishall, the path passes through Castle Acre with its ruined castle and priory, with the path ending at Holme-next-the-Sea.

The Roman road that this route follows was built to subdue the rebellious Iceni tribe in 61AD. You can combine it with the Norfolk Coast Path, giving you 96 miles of trail which then forms one of the 15 National Trails in England.

The baggage transfer service on this route runs from south to north (Knettishall to Holme-next-the-Sea).
