To celebrate the 4th Annual Norfolk Walking and Cycling festival, being hosted by The Marriott's Way Heritage Trail this year, the Norfolk Trails team have given us some of their favourite walking and cycling routes around Norfolk. Here is Coastal Treasures trainee Benji's favourite part of the Norfolk Trails network that he enjoyed whilst growing up..
THE ANGLES WAY
Before evening knowing its name I grew up along this trail.
As a kid I would look out for snakes along Sandy Lane leading to Fritton Woods. I’d sharpen sticks and pretend to silently hunt and track my sister while my auntie and her rode horses. At Burgh Castle, I’d gather clay from the River Waveney and go crabbing. I’d climb the Roman walls and stalk walkers from the tree line. My Nan lives in Lound and the fields out the back connect to Angles way. These fields around St Mary’s Church were a great source of entertainment as I and friends played war. Sticks became guns, acorns became grenades and rabbits target practice for imaginary bullets. I’m feral at heart and proud of it.
