This is a walks book with a difference. The authors have made it their mission to produce a guide that is both useful and entertaining – a book the reader can refer to before starting out to decide which part of the trail to follow, something to take with them on a longer walk, or to sit back with on their return to remind them of all they have seen.

The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail combine to make up one of the country’s most popular long distance paths. The fantastic scenery on offer and gentle terrain makes the trail particularly suitable for people with special access needs.

The Peddars Way runs from Knettishall Heath Country Park in Suffolk following the route of a Roman road to Holmenext- the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast. Here it meets the Norfolk Coast Path as it runs from Hunstanton to Cromer. The two trails together cover approximately 93 miles (150km.

Many walkers may want to tackle the trail taking one section after the other without any detours. However, the authors discovered so many wonderful sites and detours adjacent to the main route that they have included their pick of these in a series of text boxes entitled ‘JUST OFF THE PATH’. Throughout, Daniel Tink’s superb photographs provide a wonderful reminder of all the best sights to be experienced en route.

It is said that a super-fit walker can finish both sections of the trail – the Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path – in little over three days. The authors’ hope is to seduce the walker into a more leisurely exploration resulting in a more memorable experience.
