Potter Heigham - Martham - Repps – Bastwick – Potter Heigham

This walk explores the beautiful countryside around Potter Heigham and Martham. It starts next to the River Thurne at Potter Heigham and follows the riverbank for a couple of miles, all the way to Martham. The riverbank path offers some great views down the river and to the surrounding marshes. Along the path you will pass Martham Level Drainage Mill, which was built in 1908 and stands in excellent condition.

After passing through the village of Martham, the route heads up to Thunder Hill. The hill stands nearly 50ft above the surrounding countryside and offers excellent views in all directions. Distant views extend to the famous red and white Happisburgh Lighthouse and to Bacton Gas Terminal beyond.

After crossing the A149 at the Martham crossroads, the route follows quiet country lanes to Repps. The route passes around the lovely St Peter's Church, one of the 124 round-towered churches in Norfolk. The route then passes next to the remains of St Peter's Chapel in Bastwick. The ruins are quite a landmark because they can be seen from near the riverbank and from the A149.
