This good length walk starts off by the parish church in Wroxham. The church is located about a 10 minute walk away from the busy village centre at Wroxham Bridge. The village has many facilities including a large department store and food hall, several take-aways and much more. This can be a problem during holiday times (mainly in the summer holidays) as the village can be a very busy place, with no chance of finding a parking space in or near Roys of Wroxham. For people seeking peace and quiet, keep away from the village centre during holiday times! Thankfully this walk keeps away from the bustling hordes at the village centre. From the church the route follows a public bridleway into the Wroxham Hall estate. Unfortunately you can’t see the hall as it is hidden behind trees, but the estate is a lovely place. The bridleway ends at a country road called Dobbs Lane. The route quickly turns off this road (as it can be quite busy at times) to follow a quieter country lane into the village of Salhouse. What is interesting is the road that takes you to Rackheath (known unpleasantly as Muck Lane) actually passes right through the middle of a World War 2 Airfield. The straight lines of trees on the left and right follows the lines of the old runways.
From Rackheath, the route follows a public footpath through the Salhouse Hall estate. This footpath passes very close to the hall so there are lovely views to the house and surrounding landscape. The return journey follows quiet country lanes a footpaths to get back to Wroxham village church and offers beautiful views over the surrounding fields.
