Map of the walk

Upton is between Acle and Potter Heigham and is a short drive from most of the cottages. This is a 5.5 mile circular walk

The White Horse Pub in Upton

Start your walk at The White Horse in Upton which is a community pub ran by the locals. The postcode for the carpark is NR13 6BT

Head left from the car park onto Marsh Road and follow the road around 0.3 miles down to the end where you will see the barrier gate leading onto the walk.

Here you will go through onto the concrete path of Upton Marshes. This walk is around 5.5 miles total and you will see an abundance of beautiful scenery and wildlife and very rarely do you see anyone else around.

Follow the concrete path for around a mile. Don’t come off of the path until you come to a gateway that goes onto a rubble/dirt track.

Follow this until you take a bend to your right and you will see the water pump and the Broads.

When you get to the Broads, go through small gate on your right.

Grass track after the gate

You will now be on a grass track between the Broads on your left and the marshes to your right. Enjoy the scenery as this is around 2 miles. Don’t come off this track until you get to the boat yard,

You will pass a number of windmills during your walk this is a great walk for letting your dog off lead and stopping and taking in wildlife you may see.

When you reach the boat yard, stay on the path until you go through the small car park passing Weavers Way house and you will get to the road.

Take a right onto Boat Dyke Road and stay on this small country road passing the pretty cottages until you come to the end of the road.

Take a right and here you will see you are back at the White Horse Pub and you can enjoy a lovely homecooked meal in the dog friendly pub or garden.

So do test this wonderful walk out when you are here and let us know what you think!!!
