Barnham Broom

Norfolk, England

Ludham walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

Start Point

Walk towards the bridge, at a ‘public footpath’ sign turn right to head north on a riverside path on the east side of the river, passing a long stretch of moorings. The remains of Neave’s drainage mill are on the far side of the river in less than one mile. Ahead, a wind pump with sails and the large building at How Hill can both be seen. Bend right, by an inlet from the river, and then left at a junction to return to the river bank. Pass Turf Fen drainage mill and reach the staithe (moorings) serving How Hill.

The adjacent thatched broad house is the home of ‘Electric Eel’. Water based wild life is abundant here.

1. Turn right at waymark to pass Toad Hole Cottage, a former eel catcher’s house, now a mini museum of traditional Broads life. Continue up the broad access track to How Hill. Pass the buildings and join a minor road, opposite the Mill House. Turn left.

2. On reaching a few isolated houses turn right, into a signposted green land, gently uphill. As the track bends to the left, turn righ in 3-4 metres along a narow path across the corner of a cultivated field. Continue on through the next field heading almost towards the (barely visiable) distant tower of Ludham Church. Join a grass track on the far side of a hedge, turning right. In 50m. In 50m, turn left at telegraphy poles, along a field edge path. Cross a minor road and continue straight ahead, keeping the field boundary on the left.

3. Reach a public road, turning right to follow the roadside path towards Ludham. At the crossroads in the middle of the village turn right, the Alfresco tea room is immediately on the right, with the parish church of St. Catherine opposite. On the left of the main road, a footpath has been created, follow this beside the road for about a quarter mile.

4. Turn left at Lovers’ Lane. Approximately 100m. after the lane loses its surface, turn right to take a rising path towards Ludham Hall. Pass the buildings before turning right at a minor road. On joining the main road turn left, passing the Dog Inn to return to Ludham Bridge in approximately a quarter mile.
