Walk Description:

 

 

EXPECT WITCHCRAFT,  A WORKHOUSE STILL IN USE (as what?) AND A WORKING RIVER on this SATURDAY GREAT YARMOUTH SPECIAL...

This diverse walk takes us from Bure Park towards Great Yarmouth along the river (Bure).  Distant windmills dot the extremely flat landscape and then we hit the terraced backstreets and fading grandeur of the town. The cemetery behind St Nicholas’s Church is fascinating.  Seven alleged witches who were executed in 1584 lie buried here.  We head out towards the ‘Venetian Canals’ and then yonder through the dunes and sandy paths before heading past the Race Course to end our walk.

CAR BOOT CAFE for those who can stay.  Bring your own chairs and eats/drinks...

Did You Know?

The Yarmouth Poor Law Union was formed in 1837 and the Union workhouse was built the following year. 

The Norfolk County Surveyor, John Brown, designed the workhouse as well as others in Blofield, Henstead and Docking. It could house 300 inmates. 

Only some workhouse buildings still remain. Northgate Hospital now occupies the former workhouse site and uses some of these buildings. 

There is some evidence of use during World War Two as a military training site.
