This is a nice local village walk in the East Anglia Broads area. The walk heads down past the local soccer pitch through the lovely flint napped Blofield Church and graveyard. The path climbs through fields up to the little Braydeston Church on the hill.
From there you drop down over the bridge on the brook and head along the river bank to Brundall. You exit the path in a cul-de-sac. Head out to the main road and turn right. Continue to walk down through the village of Brundall until you come to the junction where you turn left past the thatch covered lynch-gate of another lovely little church. Keep straight on down the path to the main Norwich to Gt. Yarmouth railway line. Take care crossing this busy line.
Head straight down the raised path leading from the railway kissing-gate towards the river. This fen is low lying with mosses, willow and other water loving vegetation. The path exits at the river Yare where there is a free mooring staith available. Continue to the right along the river and return in a loop to the right along the raised path and board-walk. This brings you back to the kissing-gate at the railway line. Cross carefully.
Head back up to the village of Brundall and head right until you meet the junction with LinksAvenue leading left down to the sports centre. Keep to the right-hand side of the pavilion and follow the path through the fields until you arrive at the Blofield road. Turn right and head back to your starting point in the village of Blofied.
