The Angles Way is a long distance walking trail running close to the River Waveney and River Little Ouse following to the county boundary between Norfolk and Suffolk between Great Yarmouth and Thetford. There are a selection of circular, short and long walks available on Angles Way which start in Harleston. There is something for everyone, whether you want to exercise the dog or simply fancy a stroll through beautiful countryside before relaxing in a welcoming pub with a drink and a bite to eat.
Harleston Circular Walk: 6.5 miles, 2.5 hours. This walk starts in Harleston, taking in some stunning countryside, visiting the village of Redenhall with its impressive church and follows the Angles Way back into Harleston.
Harleston to Homersfield: 4 miles, 2 hours. This route travels through the claylands of Norfolk and Suffolk along the valley of the River Waveney. The landscape is predominantly farmland with large arable fields on the upper levels and grazing marsh in the river valleys.
Harleston to Brockdish: 4 miles, 2 hours. This stretch of Angles Way crosses the River Waveney twice. Now a considerably smaller river than it was at the eastern section, the lush grazing meadows beside the river and diverse aquatic flora and fauna in the river has given some sections of the river County Wildlife Site status.
Harleston to Earsham: 10 miles, 3.5 hours. Ramble through an undulating landscape of peaceful country roads, footpaths and farm tracks. Enjoy panoramic views in Homersfield from the high ground above a large area of open water, known as Flixton Pits.
Harleston to Diss: 13.5 miles, 4.5 hours. Enjoy a walk between the historic towns of Harleston and Diss, sometimes closely following the meandering River Waveney, sometimes leaving it to enjoy the fabulous views from higher ground over the Waveney Valley.
