The Acle and Burlingham Woodland Walks is a fairly new concept. Some of the woodlands are still in their infancy but still a pure delight to walk through. Over the coming years the woodlands will mature more and attract a more diverse wildlife selection for people to see. The route starts off at Acle which is along the A47 - the main artery road linking Great Yarmouth with Norwich. Public transport links to this village are some of the best in the area! From the centre of Acle the route quickly finds some open countryside to explore as you work your way towards the woodlands. Numerous plantations are visited along the route, the notable ones being Millennium Woods which are maturing nicely and the Belt Plantation. The Belt Plantation is a mature wood and offers a wide array of wildlife including deer and squirrels and many types of fungi. The route then heads through the Church Plantation and past North Burlingham Church. If time allows, take the detour into the village of North Burlingham to see the ruins of the nearby church! After crossing the A47 the route takes a more Norfolk Countryside appearance as it follows field edges to Lingwood and then over to Beighton. The area around here is rather hilly (for Norfolk!) and follows a long country lane back towards Acle.

Did this walk on 17.9.13. We really enjoyed this very interesting walk especially through the woodland areas - lovely to see what can be done in partnership with the local authority. Acle is a very good starting/finishing point. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow - thank you. (Just a shame that there are no public footpaths to the south of Acle so the return part of the walk is quite a long road stretch - not busy, but the cars that were using it were travelling fast.)
