Walks in the area

Swanton Morley is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside and as such offers plenty of opportunities to walk, cycle and ride on quiet country lanes and across a good network of paths.  The 12 mile Wensum Way passes through the village which itself  connects to longer distance routes, the Nar Valley Way at Gressenhall and the Marriott’s Way at Lenwade.  In addition to the public footpaths, bridleways and byways there are also a number of permissive paths where agreement has been made with local landowners to allow public access.

  • Please use the paths considerately

  • If you have a dog please keep it under control and clear up any mess

  • Please also follow the countryside code

*Harkers lane/Green lane is a restricted byway and can be used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders*
