Between Hickling Heath and Hickling Green, there is a track that leads along the edge of Hickling Broad. This track makes for a perfect meander to witness some wonderful views out over Hickling’s impressive Broad. The path eventually leads to the nature reserve (footpath only) via a farm.
The Norfolk Trails network brings together more than 1,200 miles of footpaths throughout our beautiful county here in Norfolk. As well as straightforward family friendly paths there are plenty of trails to suit more serious ramblers, varying from 1 mile (1.6 km) through to 10 miles (16 km) in length.
Hickling Campsite is situated on The Weavers’ Way, which is the famous long distance footpath and is an impressive 56 miles (90 km) long running from Cromer to Great Yarmouth. It passes through Hanworth, Aylsham, North Walsham, Worstead, Stalham, Potter Heigham, Thurne and Halvergate before crossing the marshes around Berney Arms and skirting the northern edge of Breydon Water where it shares the same route as the Wherryman’s Way.
The name Weavers’ Way comes from the cloth industry that was once a major industry in the area before the industrial revolution. At Great Yarmouth it joins the Angles Way. Combined with the Peddars Way the trails make a circuit around Norfolk.
To join the Weavers’ Way and enjoy a walk please visit the Norfolk County Council website. Walks that you can join at Hickling are 8,9,10,12.
