The Bittern Line
These guided walks have been organised by the Bittern Line Community Rail Partnership, which aims to encourage greater patronage of the Norwich to Sheringham Railway line by local residents, visitors and businesses through the development of small scale initiatives. All the walks are FREE to rail ticket holders. The Bittern Line also produces a pack of leaflets detailing walks from each Bittern Line Station.

For further details about the guided walks, and to confirm that the walks are going ahead as planned, please phone Ian Dinmore on
