Armchair walks

Summer Walks & Slide Shows

May 23rd 2015

From Hall Lane, across the B1152 and following the Public Footpath sign, up across the field as far as the top track.  This track should lead the walker to Billockby by turning right, and to Mill Lane, Fleggburgh going left.  How possible the Fleggburgh section is, has not been tested recently.  Going up to the track was heavy-going, but worth it for the panoramic views on the way back.

Armchair walks

Concessionary Path ~ the complete Circular Walk

(Note: by the end of 2015 the concession had been removed from the start of this walk, which at the Clippesby end now has no public access.)

When Robert van der Zaal stayed in Clippesby in May 2015, he achieved the whole Circular Walk, and took these pictures for us.

The walk goes much further than our earlier photos and slide shows, taking in part of the rivers Bure and Thurne, Thurne Mill,  and Oby, returning to Clippesby along Hall Lane.
