Barton Broad Boardwalk
This walk takes you to the lovely Barton Broad Boardwalk where you can follow the accessible path through swampy woodland and enjoy wonderful views across Barton Broad.
The walk starts at the car park on Long Road (shown on the streetview link) and then follows Irstead road to the boardwalk. It's a nice easy stroll through the countryside on a good country lane. You'll see the boardwalk on your left after about 10-15 minutes. You then follow the boardwalk through dense woodland with various interesting species of plants. Look out for a variety of wildlife including common terns, otters, kingfishers and herons.
