The first stage of a new project to link local villages in the Broads together using footpaths and cycle tracks has been announced. The work will begin with a track which will connect Hoveton and Horning.
The track will be suitable for both walkers and cyclists with the Hoveton to Horning stretch being around 3.7 kilometres in length. The project is being run by the Three Rivers Way Association and they confirmed that:
“The route will start at Hoveton and Wroxham Station and will have a spur up the Stalham Road to enable pupils to access Broadland High School from the back of the school. The route follows the road to Horning and includes a crossing to St John’s Primary School. Phase 1 finishes at Lower Street Horning”.
After the first stage is completed it is hoped that additional stages will also be opened. These are expected to include Horning to Ludham Bridge, Ludham Bridge to Ludham and Ludham to Potter Heigham.
Further information about the project, which is welcomed by Norfolk Ramblers, is available at http://www.threeriversway.org.uk/.
