Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Wherry Inn in Geldeston, Norfolk. The Wherry Inn is a classic village pub and a great place to enjoy a bite of lunch after your walk. The walk is a fantastically varied route with something for everyone. It heads out alongside the banks of the River Waveney to reach the nearby village of Dunburgh. From this point the route follows a mixture of quiet lanes and field paths to visit more local settlements and several of the impressive halls and churches along the way. The route has just a few steady slopes and follows mostly unmade paths, many of which (including the fields) can get very muddy after rain and in winter. There is one tall stile on route which has gaps underneath which medium dogs should be able to squeeze under, but large dogs may need a lift over (our standard poodle just managed to squeeze underneath). You will also need to negotiate a few flights of steps and several kissing gates (a couple of which are quite tight). One of the fields you cross may be holding horses so take care with dogs. There are a couple of sections of road walking along country lanes so take care of any traffic at these points. Approximate time 2 hours.

Geldeston is located close to the Norfolk-Suffolk border, about 2 miles north-west of Beccles. The walk starts and finishes from the Wherry Inn pub on The Street, which has its own car park. Approximate post code NR34 0LB.

Beautiful walk. Abit muddy in places but generally a lovely walk in the Norfolk countryside.

First to Review

This was a great walk with a nice variety of scenery. The Wherry Inn pub was the highlight! The roast dinners were fantastic and the welcome was very friendly. All of the above was a breeze with a 3 year old so a very kid friendly walk and pub. We were lucky the weather was dry and mild. The stinging nettles were a bit over grown for around 1.5k by the water so long trousers are advisable.
