A level circular walk from Fleet Dyke Moorings, South Walsham. If you are traveling by boat this walk can be started from the Moorings, or if you are coming by car a car park can be found on the route. Half the route follows a new flood defence bank on the river, the remainder follows a farm track back to the village. The St. Benet's Abbey monastery ruins can be seen across the river on this walk as well as an abundance of wildlife. Marsh harriers are frequently seen on this walk so allow plenty of time if you enjoy bird watching. Barn Owls are common in the evening.

It was a decent trail, the common and the bit along the coast is good. We ended up going through private property at the end so probably need to do something different here!

Nice walk if it wasn't so overgrown. The long straight bit is fairly boring for kids.

Completed the walk on 1st Jan 17 to clear cobwebs and hangover � very muddy but really enjoyable . Shame we couldn't let our dogs off the lead thou as there was too much water �
