Weavers' Way (Cromer to Great Yarmouth)

Linking the north Norfolk coast at Cromer to the east Norfolk coast at Great Yarmouth, the 61 mile Weavers' Way passes through a diverse landscape of woodland, mixed farmland, historic country estates, disused railway lines, riverside walks and the famous Norfolk Broads.
