This great walk starts off in Bacton and follows a footpath round to the seaside village of Keswick, but passes close to Bromholm Priory along the way. The priory is also known as Bacton Abbey and was founded in 1113. It was an important object of pilgrimage as it claimed to possess a piece of the true cross. The route then heads down to the beach and follows the coast north-west for a fair distance before heading inland again. The route follows a public footpath across fields up to the lovely parish church of St Andrew. The last section follows a quiet country lane back to the B1159 and then to the car park.

A terrific mix of countryside, coast and a little bit of Bacton, a splendid way to spend 90 minutes on a freezing cold January day. No problems with directions. The Duke pub closed down in 2018.
