Our walk on 22 July will start from St Helen’s picnic site car park near Santon Downham, 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, 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 – Blood Hill tumulus – Thetford Warren Lodge – High Lodge Forest Centre – St Edmund Way – Santon Downham – Santon House : 13 miles [8.5 am + 4.5 pm]
Lunch: at High Lodge Forest Centre. Menu: Fairly basic (see below)– sandwiches, baguettes, salad bowls and some hot meals etc. but no alcohol served! Own food, including transported beer, may be consumed on the tables outside or inside if wet (excluding own beer!) provided it is not too crowded.
