Thorpe Market church runs Boxing Day walk
St Margaret’s Church in Thorpe Market will be organising a guided Boxing Day walk through Gunton Park, hailed as one of the most beautiful parks in Norfolk.
The route will include a visit to the Robert Adam church, views of the restored hall, lakes and deer park, and hopefully entry to the restored sawmill, pictured right, all by kind permission of the land-owners.
The walk will start from Thorpe Market Church car park at 10:00am on Tuesday December 26. It will follow a planned route around the park, finally reaching the Gunton Arms and walking back to the top of Church Road through the woodland belt parallel to the A149. It will last approximately 90 minutes on level ground, although some areas may be soft and unsuitable for wheels. There will be hot drinks at the church on return.
“This will be an opportunity to work off some of those Christmas calories and enjoy this Humphrey Repton - inspired corner of North Norfolk” said Margaret Hunter from the church.
Dogs are allowed but must be on leads. There will be a £3:00 per adult or dog charge, children free. The proceeds will go to Crisis at Christmas charity with a donation to the sawmill if it is able to open.
Those wishing to join the walk should pre-register before December 23.
