The walk starts in the seaside town of Sheringham on the Norfolk coast and follows the North Norfolk Coastal Path for a while, goes inland through a small part of Sheringham Park and through Weybourne Railway Station, which is on North Norfolk’s preserved steam railway line, nicknamed 'The Poppy Line'. It then carries on up onto the eastern side of Kelling Heath, through woodland, down through Weybourne Village and back onto the Coastal Path to Sheringham.

Rail enthusiasts may find this walk interesting, with plenty of photo opportunities for taking pictures of the steam railway with the sea in the background. A good view of the sea, surrounding countryside and photographs can be had from the Gazebo in Sheringham Park, from where my photograph of the train with Weybourne Windmill in the background was taken. The Gazebo stands way above the tree line. With the railway there is always the option of just walking to Weybourne Station then riding the train back to Sheringham. That would be approximately three miles. If you decide on reversing the walk you may well be pleased of the ride back to Sheringham, as that part of the walk is the longest.

During your travels you will come to Kelling Heath Nature Trail on the west side of Kelling Heath, which could be followed as an extra walk before continuing on your way. A map can be obtained from Weybourne Railway Station.

You will also go past The Muckleburgh Collection, which is the UK's largest privately owned working Military Museum. It is definitely worth a visit at some point. Telephone number: 01263-588210; web link: The Muckleburgh Collection

Walked today on a cool spring day. Started from East Runton so doubled the walk length. Absolutely amazing walking along the sea coast and Sheringham Golf Club. The walk inland that included the steam railway was equally enjoyable. On its own this was a fab walk and highly recommend it.

What a wonderful walk and so varied. Coast walking, steam trains, woods, gorse covered heathlands and a viewing platform above the trees. Good clear waymarkers and we made the most of this walk on a beautiful spring day! Thank you
