Lords of the Manor
This cycle ride starts from the historic market town of Aylsham. From here the route heads north along quiet country lanes, through gently rolling landscapes and picturesque villages, such as Itteringham, Baconsthorpe and Hanworth. Here you can explore the grand country estates of the rich and famous - from the Jacobean Blickling Hall, with its fine tapestries and furniture, to the rambling roses of medieval Mannington, and 17th C. Felbrigg Hall with its walled garden. Along this route you can discover some of Norfolk's round-towered churches, visit the 15th C. remains of Baconsthorpe Castle and take a ride and take a ride on a real narrow gauge steam railway.
