Church and ice house walk, Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk

Walking trail

Dating from the 15th Century, Felbrigg was the home to Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer, and before him other Ketton-Cremers and Windhams, who long ago were de Felbriggs. This varied circular walk goes through open fields and woods, passing a church, lake, the ice house and a variety of interesting trees.

Along this circular walking trail you'll pass historic buildings dating back to the 1700s, notable trees, a hidden lake and an imaginatively planted arrangement of beech trees. Easy, 2.5 miles. Suitable for families.
