Ingham is a beautiful village with a long history dating back many millennia. The start of the walk is by the church just off the main road through the village. The church was built onto the remains of the Trinitarian Priory, of which much of the ruins can still be seen above ground level. The ruins are well worth a ten-minute exploration, as much is well-preserved, including archways and spiral staircases.

The route then follows quiet country lanes and footpaths to arrive at the town of Stalham. This walk does not pass any shops but in passing the church in Stalham, the high street is just the other side of it and a footpath exists through the churchyard to the shops. There are also toilets just down the high street.

The return journey to Ingham is one with several characteristics. Firstly the route passes through a small housing estate to get to the footpaths that link the villages. Along the footpath back to Ingham there are some great views looking north. The famous red and white Happisburgh Lighthouse can be seen as well as the cathedral-like church. At any one time down the path, up to four churches can be seen in the surrounding villages.

This is a nice country walk around the footpaths of Stalham and Ingham. The start point is at Ingham but this walk can be easily adapted to begin in Stalham too. At point 14 two options for directions are given. I would recommend turning left and following the footpath that way. Turning right leads to Town Road and although the speed limit is 30mph, cars frequently speed along that stretch of road and it can be hazardous for walkers at times. Ingham Church is beautiful and well worth stopping to investigate.
