RELAX WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS....CYCLE THE PEACEFUL LANES OF WEST NORFOLK.


NINE MILES RIDE ONECockley Cley - Beachamwell Warren

STARTING POINT: SWAFFHAM - THEATRE STREET FREE CAR PARK.

Turn RIGHT out of the car park to the end of the road and RIGHT again into Haspalls Road. Continue to the end, where it joins Cley Road at the crossroads by the iron gates of the recreation ground.

Turn LEFT here, the recreation ground on your left, past a bungalow estate, round a bend and into a narrow hedge lined lane. Once past the farm and the golf club the view opens out to reveal typical Brecks heathland with patches of mixed woodland.

Three miles of pleasant fairly straight road brings you to a row of houses at the fringe of the little hamlet of COCKLEY CLEY.

Here, on the right, you will see a wooden bus shelter at the edge of the road. Just beyond this is a copse of trees, after which, where the road begins to dip, turn RIGHT into a tiny lane , which then immediately joins another. Bear RIGHT up a rise, passing a few houses and into a tunnel of ancient Scots Pines.

After a pleasant section of forest the lane descends on to open cultivated fields and bears sharp right. On long Summer evenings in this area, deer can often be seen feeding at the edge of the forest. In about half a mile the lane joins the Beachamwell road at a ’T’ junction.

Turn RIGHT here on to the last leg of the triangle. The road rises slightly up to the hamlet of Drymere and then on between hedges until you arrive at the junction opposite the gates of the recreation ground. Ignore the sign for the ‘Town Centre’ and turn LEFT, where you will come to a ‘No Entry’ sign just before the Market Place is reached. Turn RIGHT here into Theatre Street and return to the car park..
