  • Description
  • Related

The Pixz Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books that attract families and others to exploring the countryside in a leisurely way.

It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

Tony Rothe has already produced two books in the Boot Up Series based on walks on the North Norfolk Coast. In this book he wanders further afield and provides ten exhilarating walks on the Norfolk Broads.

As the author says in his introduction: “Much of the area’s charm, stems from its isolation and inaccessibility. Many of these walks take you along riverbanks, giving you glimpses of open water of the Broads where possible. The ten walks in this little book explore the area around four Norfolk rivers, the Yare, the Bure, the Ant and the Thurne. The landscape includes rivers, shallow lakes, woodland, fens, grazing marshes and farmland, usually in a context of startling beauty, and with an amazing variety of wildlife habitats – walks to appeal to everyone.”

The ten walks included here are:

BURE – BUXTON : RIVERBANK TO OXNEAD • BURE – COLTISHALL : HORSTEAD MILL TO LITTLE HAUTBOIS • YARE – THORPE ST ANDREW : WHITLINGHAM BROAD AND RIVERYARE • BURE – SALHOUSE : TO AND FROM THE SALHOUSE BROAD • ANT – LUDHAM : LUDHAM BRIDGE AND THE RIVER ANT • BURE – LUDHAM : ST BENETS ABBEY AND THE RIVER ANT • THURNE – LUDHAM : WOMACKWATER AND HORSE FEN • THURNE – POTTER HEIGHAM : RIVER THURNE AND HORSEFEN BANK • THURNE – HORSEY : HORSEY MERE AND MARSHES • YARE – BURGH CASTLE : ROMAN CASTLE AND ANGLESWAY

Tony Rothe has lived all his life in Norfolk, and has a passion for the North Norfolk coast. Living in Norwich as a lad, he was never happier than when staying at his parents’ caravan at Beeston Regis, where he would spend many happy hours walking on cliffs and beaches, or cycling through the countryside, enjoying the wide open skies, the surging, hungry waves, or just the stunning coastline views. He lives in Sheringham, with his wife Maggie and two children, and works now as a children’s instructor at a local Field Study Centre, after many years of producing sales statistics for a major insurance company. He is the author of A Boot Up the Norfolk Coast Book 1 and A Boot Up the Norfolk Coast 2 in this series.
