Book Description

23 Feb 2007 National Trail Guides
The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path together form the 93-mile (149-km) National Trail that starts near Knettishall in the Brecklands on the Norfolk-Suffolk border and runs north-west to meet the shores of the Wash near Hunstanton before turning east to follow the beautiful North Norfolk coastline to Cromer. The first part of the route, The Peddars Way, follows the route of a Roman road, running arrow-straight along the chalk ridge of north-west Norfolk; the Norfolk Coast Path, in contrast, follows the seawall along the beaches and around the muddy creeks that form a coastline that is home to some of the most famous and spectacular nature reserves in the country. This is the complete, official guide to the entire route for both the long-distance walker and the weekend stroller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up 18 Feb 2004
This book is all anyone needs for undetaking the Peddars Way and Norfolk coastal path. It has clear 1:25,000 maps with the route highlighted and guides you through the trail with words. It also manages to give a insight into the Roman History of the area and some geology also. However the trail is unbelieveably well signed posted and a 1:50,000 map with some common sense would see you along the trail safely. The book is a handy size to carry and to an extent good for planning. It does give you numbers and addresses which may be useful to whose booking accomodation and transport but i feel more energy should of been placed into this section. The book is certainly worthy of any National trail guide and is the only guide available for this walk to my knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars all you need to know, and more. 30 April 2011
By ian f
having decided to run the whole of the trail in a day, i was looking for a clear guide which would be easy to understand with clear mapping. this guide fits the bill. detailed descriptions of any potentially tricky bits are given which will ensure you don't take a wrong turn. plenty of extra info in the guide too regarding places of interest, local history etc.
saying all that, the trail is so clearly marked with the familiar acorn symbol throughout, i only reffered to the guide when i wanted to know how far away i was from a particular place. you can walk the trail without a guide easily but this comprehensive guide gives you all those other interesting nuggets which i enjoyed reading in my B&B after 46+ miles of running. :)

Inspiring pictures and texts. Good to know that local people have taken the trouble to clear and restore the old paths for us all. Very grateful to them and to the compilers of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peddars way 14 Jun 2010
I bought this as I intended to walk the Peddars Way in sections. Helpful ordanance survey maps are included in the book, but it would be sensible to have a complete map as well. The colour photographs show nearby features and the landscape. There are sections on planning, safety, equipment tips, weather, accommodation and public transport, and in addition the all important waymarks, which show the route. This is a handy accompaniment to walking a long distance route. It is small and sturdy enough to fit in a pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to walk this trail 19 Dec 2009
Used this guide when walking this path. It provided all of the infromation and mapping that I needed. Also good practical tips, historical data etc. Only thing you need to get extra are local bus timetables if you wish to use public transport whilst in Norfolk. Overall, defintely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peddars Way Walk 14 Oct 2009
An excellent informative book. I am currently using it for the Peddars Way section. The maps are perfect for our needs and the snippets of information make for an even more interesting walk. Highly recommended.
