Deadman's Grave

Address: IP28 6PX

Deadman's Grave is said to be the burial place of an executed highwayman, who in revenge at being denied a Christian burial now haunts this place! But don't let that put you off enjoying this lovely autumn and winter walk when the site is fully open to the public.

There is a variety of landscapes with many places to stop and appreciate the peace and enjoy this special place where sheep graze and Breckland Thyme grows. The substantial rise in the land to the east of the site provides views of the surrounding landscape that can only be guessed at from the start of the track.

By foot Deadman's Grave is most easily reached by walking from Icklingham village. You can park in a small layby that close to where they B1112 meets the A1101.

From Icklingham walk northwards along the Icknield Way path (also known as Seven Tree Road) to the site. You can also continue nothwards to reach Berner's Heath Open Access site and make a circular walk through the Kings Forest via West Stow Country Park before heading back to Icklingham.

Open: 1 November until 28 February
