West Runton and Beeston Bump Circular Walk
This circular walk from the Norfolk village of West Runton takes you up to Beacon Hill, Beeston Regis Heath and Beeston Bump where there's some nice footpaths and a fine viewpoint.
The walk starts at the car park in West Runton on the sea front. You can then pick up a country lane heading south towards Town Hill and Beacon Hill, passing the National Trust's Incleborough Hill on your left. Beacon Hill is notable as the highest point in the county of Norfolk, standing at a height of 103 metres (338 ft) above sea level. There's excellent views towards the coast here.
At Beacon Hill you can pick up the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path and follow the waymarked footpath west passing the site of a Roman Camp before coming to Beeston Regis Heath and Beeston Bump where there's more great views and pretty heather.
The route then turns north to take you past Beeston Regis village and the remains of the old priory. You then come out at the coast near Sheringham where you can follow a path along the beach to return to West Runton.
