This nice length walk starts off by the lovely parish church of St Peter and St Paul’s in Mautby. The route follows quiet country lanes past Mautby Decoy – a small broad completely separate from the main river system and proceeds towards the River Bure to the south. Here is Mautby Marsh Drainage Mill. The mill is a 3 storey red brick towermill built to drain the marshes into the River Bure and over the last 30 years or so been beautifully restored and worth a short detour to see. The route then follows the River Bure to the east and enjoys lovely views over the water and surrounding marshes. When walking this section keep an eye out for all the local wildlife as there is much to see in this area. Just beyond the secluded Three Mile House is Ashtree Farm Drainage Mill – another wonderfully restored drainage mill which was originally constructed in 1912 on the site of an older mill.

From here on the route changes in character slightly by following a track to West Caister – I would like to point out how flat it is here… Quite possibly the flattest area in Norfolk! Once reaching West End the ground gains a little bit of height and when crossing the fields near the end of the walk do not forget to look over to the north east where you will see the towering remains of the 15th Century Caister Castle.

Walk completed on 30th December in sunshine. A bit wet in a few places - it does rain in Norfolk in the winter, but nothing impassable. Generally good for the dog once the first bit of road walking is done but a very quiet road anyway.
