These walks form part of the Bigod Way and its associated circular walks. The route continues south of the B1062 if you want a longer walk – the Bigod Way is 10miles (16km) in total.

Locally the high points here are knows as the hards and the low, marshy points are knows as the lows.

Look out for siskins – these are a marsh speciality here, with lots of them about. There are also migrant birds like linnets in winter and warblers in summer. Other birds you might see include whitethroats, willow warblers and stonechats. Keep your eyes peeled for otters near the open access area as they are resident here.

Bungay is great for a wander round, with interesting buildings like the beautiful 17th century Butter Cross. A market has been held on this site on Thursdays since 1382 – and it still is! You can also visit (and picnic in) the grounds of the tiny but wonderful ruined Bungay Castle (free entry), right in the centre of town. Some areas around the castle are suitable for wheelchair access.

The Bigod Way is a high point in the Broads – the part of the Bigod Way known as Bath Hills has the distinction of being the highest point in the Broads at a dizzy height of 30m above sea level.
