Wensum Way (Gressenhall to Lenwade)

Although only just over 12 miles in length, the Wensum Way can hold its own amongst the Norfolk Trails, passing through rolling landscapes and picturesque villages.

It also forms an important link between the Nar Valley Way and Marriott's Way, creating a continuous walk right across Norfolk from King's Lynn in the west to Great Yarmouth in the east.

More to explore

You can extend your walk, west along Nar Valley Way towards King's Lynn from Gressenhall Museum, or from Lenwade head east on the Marriott's Way to Norwich or north west to Reepham and Aylsham, or even take on the full 96 mile King's Lynn to Great Yarmouth Cross-Norfolk Trail.
