SUNDAY MAY 19th

Leave Norwich to begin and make our way to Great Yarmouth / Burgh Castle

Hike: Burgh Castle to Somerleyton

Then get transport back to Norwich

Distance: 9 miles

Near Great Yarmouth lies an old Roman fort where nearly 2000 years ago Roman troops garrisoned and now we can still walk the same paths as they did. The late 3rd century 'Saxon Shore' fort at Burgh Castle was built as part of the Roman network of coastal defences, and probably abandoned just over a hundred years later. Three of its imposing stone walls survive, almost to their original height, making this one of the best preserved Roman monuments in Britain. The fourth wall collapsed into the surrounding marshes a long time ago. The land around the fort is a wildlife haven and offers panoramic views over Breydon Water.

Somerleyton Hall & Gardens
