Brancaster Staithe walking route

Brancaster Staithe

The Brancaster Staithe walk is a contrast of saltmarsh and sailing regattas, wind and woodland.

The views from the highpoint at Barrow Common are breathtaking. From here it's easy to picture traders visiting Branodunum, the Roman fort built near the shore to defend the coastline.

Getting started

The route's starting point is outside Deepdale Café at Burnham Deepdale (TF803442).

Getting there

There's a bus stop at the route's starting point served by Lynx Coastliner service 36.

There's limited car parking along A149 Main Road and Barrow Common. There's alternative parking at Brancaster Beach Car Park, Broad Lane, PE31 8AX with a mile walk to join with route. Car parking charges may apply. Check Brancaster tide times as high tides can flood the road leading to the car park.
