Overview

This book describes 40 easy-to-moderate circular day walks, grouped by area: Northeast coast and the Broads; South Norfolk, the Yare and the Waveney; North Norfolk and coast; Central Norfolk and Breckland and West Norfolk and Fens. Each walk is described step-by-step, illustrated with 1:40K OS map extracts and packed with historical, geological and other information about the landscape the route passes through.
The Fenland region of Norfolk's far west is flat and low-lying, as are the marshes and waterways of the Broads in the east, but between these two extremes there is a great deal of topography going on. The county is far more varied than most outsiders imagine, with several distinct and unique landscapes. As well as Broads and the Fens, it has the sandy Brecks, rolling farmland, ancient woodland, meandering rivers and the gorgeous North Norfolk coast with its beaches, shingle banks, salt marshes and tidal mud flats.

He has written guides to Serbia and Kyrgyzstan and is especially interested in off-the-beaten-track locations. When not abroad he likes to explore his own backyard of Norfolk and Suffolk.
Originally from the West Midlands, Laurence Mitchell has been based in East Anglia for longer than he cares to remember. With a degree in Environmental Science, he worked as a geography teacher for many years before finally reinventing himself as a freelance travel writer and photographer. Never one to follow the crowd, Laurence is especially interested in off-the-beaten-track destinations like the Balkans, Central Asia and the Caucasus region and has written guidebooks to Serbia, Belgrade and Kyrgyzstan. When not venturing off to exotic destinations abroad he likes to explore his own backyard of Norfolk and Suffolk, which he enjoys just as much as anywhere else.

In addition to writing several guidebooks, Laurence has contributed to a number of travel anthologies and provides regular travel and destination features for magazines like Hidden Europe, Geographical, Walk, Heritage and Discovery Channel Magazine in addition to world music reviews for Perceptive Travel webzine. He is a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers.
