Angles Way

The Angles Way is a beautiful walk along the Waveney Valley between the broads at Great Yarmouth and the Brecks at Thetford, and has been described as one of the best waterside walks in England.

The River Waveney forms the border between Suffolk and Norfolk, and in 1986 representatives of The Ramblers (then The Ramblers’ Association) from each area got together, with assistance from local councils and various other local organisations, to publish the route to be known as the Angles Way.

The valley and many of the paths have been in existence for hundreds of years, and the route winds through broadland, marsh, riverside, open countryside and farmland, and heathland. Apart from the beautiful landscapes, there are also many points of interest. Look out for Roman ruins at Burgh Castle, medieval castles at Bungay, Mettingham and Wingfield, and many manor houses along the way.
