Nice easy stroll in beautiful Norfolk countryside. Starting by the Scout Hut in Blofield, which is 8 miles to the east of Norwich (and gateway to the Broads), one heads down the western side of the playing field throught the "Kissing Gate" and at the bottom of the loke turn left (due north east along Church Road and Pound Lane) before swinging south on Braydeston Lane. At the T-junction turn left until next T-junction at Hemblington Road. Go straight across the road to Goat Lane and follow the path straight on. Turn right (south) on meeting Pack Lane, otherwise you end up in Lingwood. The route south brings you across beautiful open countryside and public right-of-way paths toward the edge of Strumshaw, crossing the Norwich to Yarmouth railway line along the way.
The route continues due south towards the Norwich Road and The Huntsman Inn. Then cross the road to a path leading towards a little reserve at Mill Hill. At the far end of the path through the reserve, the route swings west and north back towards Strumshaw village proper meeting the Buckenham Road. Continue left until heading NE on The Loke to Strumshaw. At the far end of The Loke turn left. There is an excellent pub here - The Shoulder of Mutton - good value and good quality.
At the western edge of Strumshaw just past the junction of Long Lane with Barn Hill Road the route veers right (NW) across the fields and back to re-cross the railway line. It traverses wide open fields heading towards Cuckoo Lane. Keep left heading north and at High-noon Farm turn left in the ferm entrance and continue across to the Church of St. Michael, Braydeston. Keep left through a gate into the field and just to your right cross over the stile. Head north and at the other side of the field it drps down to a stream. Cross the little bridge and head into the wooded track which eventually leads through the cemetary of St. Andrew and St. Peter's Church, Blofield. There are beautiful countryside views and open country as the route heads back to Blofield.
