Ale and Hearty

Norfolk’s big skies and wide open spaces put the county firmly on the map as a walker’s dream destination – with routes covering coast, country, fen and forest there’s no better way to discover the region than on foot.

Using a guide makes it easy to plan refreshment stops along the way. The Norwich and Norfolk branch of the Campaign For Real Ale publish a ‘Real Ale Walks in Norfolk’ book, which documents the history of local pubs and the ales they serve.

Several years in the making, the book also includes many interesting facets of local history and landmarks, along with extensive notes about the pub buildings, their history and ranges of beers.

Copies are available by mail order, price £6.95 including postage and packing – send cheques made payable to N & N CAMRA to Pub Walks Guide, C/O 16 Grove Avenue, Norwich, NR1 2QD.

The book is also on sale in Jarrolds Book Dept, Norwich

For further inspiration on walks with pubs along the way, log on to where you will find maps and guides created from the CAMRA branch’s database. The first is for pubs on or near the rivers of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads, while a second covers the railway routes of the Bittern Line (Norwich to Cromer/Sheringham), North Norfolk Railway (Sheringham to Holt) and the Bure Valley Railway (Wroxham to Aylsham), plus the Marriotts Way cycle route.
