The Norfolk Coast AONB, a long coastal strip, incorporates the finest, remotest and wildest of Norfolk’s renowned marsh coastlands. The coast is backed by gently rolling chalkland and glacial moraine including the distinctive 90-m high Cromer Ridge. An undulating, intimate landscape under huge skies, the AONB is characterised by its imposing churches and quiet brick and flint villages and small towns such as Wells-next-the-Sea.
This coastline contains some of the most important salt-marsh, intertidal flats, dunes, shingle and grazing marsh in Europe. Together the coastal habitats form an ecosystem of outstanding importance and National Nature Reserves within the AONB include the world-famous bird reserves, Titchwell and Cley Marshes, and Winterton Dunes, one of the country’s finest dune systems.

“Dog Walks Around The Norfolk Coast contains 16 circular dog friendly walks which vary in length, but all have one thing in common; very little time is needed on the lead. This book was created from my own desire to find good dog walks which didn’t take all day, and which would let the dogs run free as much as possible. Many of the walks I discovered whilst writing this book were great for us as humans, but not quite so good for dogs. There were too many trails which required lots of road walking, which was something I have tried to avoid as much as possible here. The walks cover the whole of the Norfolk Coast stretching from Snettisham on the west coast to Caister-on-Sea on the east coast, and all are suitable for any size of dog! Each walk gives you: >the postcode for parking >a brief sentence on what you’re likely to see >the length of walk >the OS map relevant to the area >a detailed hand drawn map of the route >clear instructions on following the route Covering 16 coastal dog walks, this is a handy little book for exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.”

“This book describes 40 easy-to-moderate circular day walks, grouped by area: Northeast coast and the Broads; South Norfolk, the Yare and the Waveney; North Norfolk and coast; Central Norfolk and Breckland and West Norfolk and Fens. Each walk is described step-by-step, illustrated with 1:40K OS map extracts and packed with historical, geological and other information about the landscape the route passes through. The Fenland region of Norfolk’s far west is flat and low-lying, as are the marshes and waterways of the Broads in the east, but between these two extremes there is a great deal of topography going on. The county is far more varied than most outsiders imagine, with several distinct and unique landscapes. As well as Broads and the Fens, it has the sandy Brecks, rolling farmland, ancient woodland, meandering rivers and the gorgeous North Norfolk coast with its beaches, shingle banks, salt marshes and tidal mud flats.”

“The Pixz Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books that attract families and others to exploring the countryside in a leisurely way. It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families. Tony Rothe follows up the success of his first book of walks on the North Norfolk Coast with 10 more walks on or near the coast, each of them offering walkers fresh ideas and giving a different perspective to a familiar ramble. Whether following the tideline or walking along a coastal path, strolling through wooded valleys or following a winding lane, this convenient pocket-sized companion is designed to add an extra dimension to the enjoyment of a leisurely walk.”
