1°C (-2°C with wind chill) did not put off the nine King’s Lynn Ramblers who attended today’s circular walk from Syderstone. Dennis and Angela led their signature five mile ramble in the cold but brilliant sunshine.
Ken led the seventeen King’s Lynn Ramblers on a Wednesday 3.6 mile ‘short and leisurely’ circular walk in and around Beachamwell. On mastering one of the fence stiles we encountered three alpacas who thought our arrival was the highlight of their day.
Paul led the eighteen King’s Lynn Ramblers from Fulmodeston to a bit of Barney and Swanton Novers Great Wood. The eight mile circular walk involved very little road walking using mainly woodland paths and well used footpaths and tracks.
After 6.7 miles into Mark and Pam’s 13 mile walk the 23 ramblers took a short lunch break here at Beachamwell village green.
The Swaffham Buttermarket was our half way stopping point for a quick break on Myra’s figure of eight 7 mile walk. It was here that any of the 22 King’s Lynn Ramblers would split and those who did not wish to complete the entire walk could return to their cars.
Whilst most people were out Christmas shopping twelve King’s Lynn Ramblers took to the fields around Tittleshall and Godwick on a bright and sunny Saturday morning. The six mile figure of eight walk was led by Myra and took us past the Lost Medieval Village of Godwick and the remains of its church tower (pictured) and onto the Turkey Farm with not a single turkey in sight (oven ready by now).

The Lookout was today’s venue for lunch on Richards 13 mile walk from Burnham Norton. After lunch the thirteen King’s Lynn Ramblers continued along the beach as far as Gun Hill turning inland to Burnham Overy Staithe following the Coastal Path back to Burnham Norton.
Whilst most people were out Christmas shopping, a select few (five) turned out for Sunday’s seven mile walk from Castle Acre. Elaine led the King’s Lynn Ramblers in brilliant sunshine along the Nar Valley to West Acre returning along Petticoat Lane to South Acre crossing the ford back to Castle Acre.
The Temple was the venue for a short break during Jan and Deri’s five mile walk around Holkham Park. The sixteen King’s Lynn Ramblers managed to avoid the shoot taking place on the estate and finished the walk before the predicted rain arrived.
Gail led a party of 10 King’s Lynn Ramblers on a 3.5 mile stroll round Ashwicken on Wednesday. We were pleased to welcome 2 new walkers, Maureen and Caroline, to the party and we hope to see them on another walk in the near future.
