South Elmham St Michael, the halfway point, is one of only 14 Doubly Thankful communities in Britain, that is parishes where everyone who went off to fight in WW1 and also WW2 returned to tell the tale.

The route crosses working farmland on paths and field margins, but many of these are very muddy after wet weather, especially where farm vehicles have been operating, so it should be regarded as a Spring / Summer ramble.

Several large commons are crossed and information boards tell their story of grazing rights for the villagers.

This is a walk with a fair amount of variety and the chance to see wildlife, ranging from hovering kestrels and panicked pheasants to shy deer and evidence of badgers. All this together with five lovely old churches on or very close to the route.
