Bridgham - Stonebridge - Peddars Way - Bridgham (Norfolk / Suffolk Border)

This walk is mostly along woodland tracks and the long-distance path Peddars Way. This area is part of what is called The Brecks. The Brecks are the driest part of England. Much of it is used by the Forestry Commission.

In the Middle Ages much of The Brecks was destroyed by over- grazing by sheep and rabbits. This led to sandstorms and in 1668 such a storm obliterated villages. In Victorian times landowners planted belts of Scots pine to stabilise the soil.

Today The Breck Society with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and English Nature work to protect this ancient land, where many valuable archaeological finds have been discovered.
