Acle and the River Bure
This circular walk explores the Bure Valley around the pretty Norfolk market town of Acle. It's a beautiful area with lots of water loving wildlife to look out for.
Starting on the eastern edge of the town you follow the Weavers' Way south to Damgate Marshes before turning east along the Tunstall Dyke. You soon come to the River Bure where you pick up the riverside footpaths towards Stokesby. Here you turn west and follow the river back to Acle.
If you would like to extend your walk you could follow the river east from Acle to Great Yarmouth. It's about a 10 mile walk to the coast with the river dotted with lots of pretty drainage mills. At Great Yarmouth you can enjoy more waterside paths along the beautiful Breydon Water. Also nearby is a circular walk around Fleggburgh and Filby Broad.
If you head north along the Bure you will soon come to Acle Bridge where there is a nice waterside pub. Keep going and you will soon come to Hickling Broad where there is a huge variety of wildlife to look out for.
