The start is in Reedham TG41897 01690. There is a wonderful Victorian swing railway bridge to the east carrying the Wherry Railway Line across the River Yare. This is a splendid part of East Anglia, 10Km from Great Yarmouth and 15Km from Norwich. There is ample riverside parking available on Riverside.

Head WNW along Riverside until you meet The Hills road. Continue west to the bend in the road at TG41584 01703. Drop down to the field and head SE until you reach the river bank. Head SW and follow the river bank all the way to the old water mill, which has been turned into lovely accommodation – The Red Mill.
Continue along the bank until you reach Reedham Ferry. This is a chain and winch hauled ferry which eliminates a very long road detour. The Reedham Ferry Inn is a very nice place for food and drink. It also has a nice holiday camping area attached to the premises.
Follow the river bank as it meanders through open countryside. You will come to the remains of a burnt-out draining pump mill that still has the cogs and gears in place. Since the surrounding land lies below the level of the river, these mills were sail driven water pumps used to keep the low lying farmland acceptably dry.
The river eventually swings N towards the British Sugar Corporation mills at Cantley. At the first junction TG39006 02562 keep to the left along the river path. The public path takes you all along the river bank right in front of the sugar mills (on your right) and towards the Reedcutter Pub. The pub sign is most interesting, with a very well endowed female punting! This is not the best place to enjoy food or drink. It is only open certain hours more to serve the local workers than the general public.
Head N across the railway line until turning right at TG38257 03894. Follow this path E and then SE through the factory settling ponds. This is not the best part of the walk and emphasises the worse of what factories can do to the landscape!
At the end of the path there is a T-junction TG39235 03395. Turn left N (and not S to the railway line like us) and follow the Marsh Road E to the junction TG39659 03585 with Well Road. Continue SE along Reedham Road turning S at TG40332 03223 for 80m before swinging E along Limpenhoe Road. The Hill Farm you have just passed on your right is a good example of the large highly mechanised units found around East Anglia, where 5,000 acres is a reasonable size of holding.
At the T-junction ahead TG41415 02877 turn S along Freethorp Road and head towards Reedham. Continue until TG41438 02331 where you go E through the access along the edge of the park. Turn right S on Witton Green and continue to cross the railway bridge. At the far side of the bridge keep straight on and swing left with the road until you reach the field TG41707 02112. Swing S along the side of the field all the way to The Hills where you head E to the old Methodist Church. At the junction with New Road swing S down Middle Hill. This brings you back to the riverside parking at Reedham.
