This nice long walk starts off in the beautiful village of Burgh Castle. The village gets its name from the Roman fort on the west side of the village and also from a Norman motte and bailey castle that was built within the Roman fort ruins. The first part of this walk takes you into the middle of these ancient remains, which for their age are in superb condition. I believe they may be some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the country, bettered only but a few sites. After a short visit to the fort the route follows the edge of Breydon Water along its full length to the north-east. Breydon Water is well-known for its birdlife and wildlife, so keep a keen eye to the sky!

The path arrives in Great Yarmouth just by the old bridge crossing near the quay and town hall. After passing through Southtown the route heads back out into the countryside to follow footpaths and country lanes back to Burgh Castle.
