Jubilee Trails Launch

HM Lord-Lieutenant offically launches Jubilee Trails

Following a weekend of royal festivities, five new walking and cycling trails for Norfolk were officially launched on Thursday 11 May 2023 in honour of our late Queen.

Ground-breaking landscape recovery work

The launch event began with a short presentation about each of the five routes, with an optional guided walk along one of the trails, The Wendling Way. The walk provided stunning views of the Wendling Beck Environment Project, and attendees had a chance to interact with the project team, learn more about the trails, and the local ground-breaking landscape recovery work in the area.

The Trails have been created to be within reach of all parts of Norfolk. They combine some existing and some improved rights of way, together with completely new sections, opening up parts of the county which previously had no public access. They encompass all aspects of Norfolk landscapes – coastal, woodland, arable, historic and urban.

Thomas Courtauld JP DL, the committee member responsible for leading the Trails project, said: “Accessibility to the natural world, and encouraging exercise and outdoor experience were central themes of last year’s Jubilee celebrations. These Trails will help foster environmental education and wellbeing for residents and visitors to Norfolk for many years to come. I would like to pay special thanks to Norfolk County Council and the Westacre Estate whose dedication and generosity have made all this possible.”
