Explore the Roman Fort and enjoy a stroll along the River Waveney on this short walk in Norfolk. The fort dates from the 3rd century and still has some of its thick walls in tact. The area around the fort is also very beautiful with nice views across the Norfolk Broads to Breydon Water and the River Yare.
You can start the walk from the free car park on Butt Lane. Then pick up the good footpaths through the site to the river where you can enjoy a waterside stroll.
The Angles Way runs past the site along the River Waveney so you can pick up this long distance footpath to extend your walk. If you follow it north east it will take you along Breydon Water to Great Yarmouth. This stretch is great for wildlife watching with thousands of wading birds to look out for. At Great Yarmouth you can pick up the Weavers' Way and follow it along the other side of Breydon Water. It will take you to Berney Marshes where there are nice views back across the river to Burgh Castle.
If you head south along the Angles Way riverside path it will take you to Belton and then on to Fritton Lake Country Park where you will find nice cycling and walking trails around a large lake.
