Barnham Broom

Norfolk, England

Venta Icenorum walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

Start Point

From the car park entrance cross the road to a gate ‘High Ash Farm’ turning right to walk over short grass on a broad track, parallel with the road. Pass a waymarked junction in 25m., then a fine row of poplar trees, to reach a junction with a minor road.

1. Turn left, uphill. Join a more important road, going ahead, now along another broad grass track parallel with the road. There are occasional waymarks on posts. After passing a substantial property, bear right to rejoin the road. Continue past Whiteford Hall Farm and other properties to reach a junction with Valley Farm Lane.

2. Turn left to walk along the surfaced lane, soon passing a pond on the left. Pass Valley Farm on the right, then Highfield Farm on the left. In a further 100m. fork right at a ‘public footpath’ sign to follow another broad grass track, with a hedge on the right. Cross a ditch on a waymarked bridge then rise to cross another plank bridge and reach a minor road. Turn left.

3. In almost 100m. turn right to leave the road, along a narrow path by the side of a bungalow, descending gently to a post with a ‘Boudica’s Way’ waymark. Turn left to walk beside a ditch, cross a plank bridge and turn right to rise gently along another fine track, passing a well-placed seat.

4. At a ‘T’ junction turn left, (a right turn here gives a short diversion into the village of Arminghall, with St. Mary’s Church). A delightful path now runs between outgrown hedges, then the edge of woodland, with a good variety of trees, including at least one very old oak.

5. Reach a cross-paths, with signpost, turn left to follow a good track as far as the minor road encountered earlier. Turn right at the road to walk down to the cross roads by the hotel in Caistor St Edmund.

6. Turn left to walk by the roadside back to Venta Icenorum. As the great embankment is reached, it is possible to go through a gate on the right and walk over grass beside the embankment towards St Edmund’s church, reached over a stile, (otherwise, walk a little further by the roadside before turning right to head for the church). Continue past the east end of the church to a little gate, then bear left to return directly to the car park.
