The Wherryman’s Way is in the Broads – Britain’s largest protected wetland. This installation is one of a number along this 35-mile recreational route following the course of the River Yare between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. The route takes its name from the wherry – a large cargo-carrying barge whose elegant black sails were a once common sight on these waters.
You can walk the whole route or explore parts of it by cycle, train and river bus. Alternatively you can explore one of the ten circular village walks en-route. Look out for the unique waymarkers along the route, which include figures, sculpture, information panels and audio points.
Wherryman's Way Circular Walks
There are 12 circular walks in this booklet, all based around the Wherryman’s Way walk which runs for 35 miles between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. Each walk comes complete with directions, a user-friendly map and is waymarked on the ground. Information about each walk is included, giving details such as distances, estimated walk times, path surfaces and facilities available. The map in the centre pages of the booklet shows the route of Wherryman’s Way and the locations of the 12 circular walks.
Ones within easy driving distance of Norwich are the Whittlingham one (park on the verge to avoid parking costs) and Surlingham (park by the church)
