Wednesday A Pingo Trail – near Great Hockham: NEW LOCATION
October 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
[Please note that walk location has been changed owing to pub closure]
Our walk on 4th October will start from the Hockham Picnic Site car parking area [GR TL938920]. Link to mapped position of car park.
Directions: Take the A11 to the roundabout approx. 2miles northeast of Thetford town centre. Turn left on the A1075, signed Wretham. Our car park is on the left-hand side, approximately 6 miles from the roundabout. After passing the speed de-restriction sign on leaving Wretham, in about 300 yards you will pass a sign warning of bends for ½ mile. Slow down at this point – the Picnic Site is about 300 yards beyond this point. There is a prominent sign at the entrance though it is blocked from view until the last few yards!
Route [6.5 miles am, 5.5 miles pm] : follows a section of Peddars Way then winds through a Nature Reserve via a series of Pingos [ice age relics], lunch, and a disused railway line. Occasional mosquitos might still be encountered in October!
Lunch at the Chequers Inn, Thompson. Good range of food. Please consume own sandwiches on the village green. Link to Chequers menu download.
