Peddars Way follows a Roman road built along the line of an even older trackway.
The name, Peddars Way, is said to be derived from the Latin “pedester”, which means “on foot”.
The trail starts in the Brecks, a unique area of forest, heath and low river valleys, running north from Knettishall Heath in Suffolk, for 46 miles through changing countryside to the north Norfolk coast near Hunstanton.

Combined with the Norfolk Coast Path, it forms the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path National Trail, one of 15 National Trails in England and Wales.
Much of the Peddars Way can be used by cyclists and there is a special route available to horseriders.
