The National Trust heathland and woodland around West Runton provides good views along the coast and out to sea. The summit of Incleborough Hill is ½ mile from the station. The earthworks at Roman Camp (1 mile) were once a naval look-out. Exploring the many footpaths in the area may be combined with walking to Felbrigg Hall (see below). The beach is ¾ mile from the station.
Rescued animals including heavy horses. Blacksmith and shire horse demonstrations.
Farming Bygones Museum with carts, wagons, caravans and farm machinery.
Children's activity areas. Café.
Open Easter-Oct, MTWThSu (also Fri Jun-Aug) 1000-1700.
One of the finest 17th century houses in East Anglia. The Hall contains its original 18th century furniture,
a large collection of Grand Tour paintings and an outstanding library. The restored Walled Garden includes a
working dovecote. There are waymarked walks through the Park. Restaurant, tearoom and picnic tables.
Open Apr-Oct, MTWSSu 1030-1630, House 1200-1600. Estate walks open all year.
Part of the walk from West Runton station is along a narrow road with no path for much of the way, take care because this road is busy at times. I recommend walking 2¾ miles from Cromer station because that route is easy to follow along good paths.
