This circular walk visits the Cawston and Marsham Heaths near Aylsham and Norwich in Norfolk.
There's some nice footpaths here, taking you around the heathland and woodland. Look out for pretty heather and birdlife including tree pipits, whinchats and nightjars.
You can start your walk from the car park on the southern side of the heath and then pick up the bridle trails and footpaths heading north. The heath lies just a mile or so west from the village of Marsham.
To extend the walk head south to Great Wood and the adjacent Buxton Heath where there's more woodland trails and wildlife to see.
