Beacon Hill - Beeston Regis Heath - Sheringham - Beeston Bump - West Runton - Incleborough Hill

This is a fantastic walk around the Sheringham countryside. It starts close to Beacon Hill, which is the highest point in the county, then heads past the Roman camp with a great view across to the North Sea. Forest tracks are then followed across to Beeston Regis and a spectacular viewpoint over to Beeston Bump and Sheringham. The route then descends into West Runton and past the enigmatic ruins of the 13th Century priory ruins.

The ruins are in fairly good condition and consist mainly of the priory church with a few information boards about. The route next starts a short ascent of Beeston Bump; at only 63m above sea level it is by no means high but the view of the north Norfolk coast is stunning. A quick descent takes you down to the railway line and heads off to the east to another small rise called Ingleborough Hill. The ascent is easy and the view is fantastic. After a descent of this little hill the route ascends back to the car park.

Superb walk from start to finish. Amazing views over Sheringham and the North Sea. The area on Incleborough Hill has much more growth these days so the wooden post mentioned at point 24 is no longer visible. If you follow the path over the hill you do end up at the gate mentioned at point 25. All instructions still good.
