July 27, 2016
[Please Note: Route and area totally changed from published programme]
Our walk on 27 July, a taste of Breckland, will start from St Helen’s picnic site car park near Santon Downham, Grid Ref TL826874, nearest Postcode IP27 0TT – click here for map.
Directions: Take the A11 to the roundabout approx 2 miles west of Thetford town centre. Turn left on the B1107 towards Brandon. After approximately 2.5 miles turn right on the minor road towards Santon Downham. After a further mile, just beyond the church on the right (obscured by trees), fork right into the centre of Santon Downham. About 200m beyond the Forest Offices car park, cross the bridge over the Little Ouse. After ~100m, and before you reach the level crossing, turn right along a narrow metalled road and follow this for about 0.5 miles to the St Helen’s car park.
Route: Santon House – Grimes Graves – Weeting Castle – Brandon – St Edmund Way (not Little Ouse Path!) – Santon House: 12 miles [8 am + 4 pm]
Lunch: the Ram Hotel, Brandon where there is a good range of food (selected menu) at a reasonable price. For those bringing sandwiches – there is a suitable spot below the bridge close to the pub – though you may appreciate some soft padding to sit on!
