In recent times the Norfolk Coast Path has been extended from Cromer down to Sea Palling and this route follows a new section of this long-distance walk. The route starts off at the pay-and-display car park close to the beach and follows the clifftops to the south-east about halfway to Cart Gap and then turns south-west. The views from the clifftops are stunning as you overlook the North Sea and up and down the beautiful Norfolk coast. This section of path also offers amazing views of the red and white lighthouse. This is the only independently operated lighthouse in Britain and stands 85ft tall. Its numerous open days throughout the year can be found at: http://www.happisburgh.org/lighthouse.

The route heads away from the sea towards a tiny hamlet called Whimpwell Green before crossing open fields north of Happisburgh Common. The return leg of the route takes you north through fields past Grub Street and up to the towering parish church. This church also has open days, which allows you to head right to the top for some of the most breathtaking views you can get on this side of Norfolk.
