Fleggburgh village walk
If you’re just out for a quick afternoon stroll, this short two-mile route around the village is the perfect way to enjoy the local area. Despite its relatively short length, the walk is very diverse and is a great way to explore the natural beauty of the Broads.
The walk begins in the Village Hall car park, near the main road in Fleggburgh. The route leads you past Fleggburgh’s pretty church and then down a footpath into open countryside. On the way, you’ll pass the picturesque Filby Broad before heading back to the village and the end of the route.
Although dogs are welcome on this circular route, you’ll need to keep your four-legged friend on a lead at all times while you’re out and about. The walk is largely flat, however you will need to contend with some stiles and muddy conditions are possible in wet weather.
Fleggburgh to Rollesby
This six-mile circular route gives you even more opportunities to explore the local area. Leave your car in the Village Hall car park and then head north, out of the village. Turn right onto Tower Road and then take the first footpath on your left. From here, the route takes you on a meander through the fields to Rollesby before turning back on itself and returning you to Fleggburgh through country lanes.
The route should take you around three hours and should be easy for people of all ages. Dogs are allowed on the walk, although they may need to be kept on the lead at certain points.
There are good pubs in both Fleggburgh and Rollesby and a number of shops along the way. Buses connect Fleggburgh with Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area.
