Marriott’s Way is a 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route running between Aylsham and Norwich.
Once two disused railways, it has now been transformed into a footpath that is easily accessible and not too far away from the Plough Inn.
The route is named after the manager of the Midland and Great Northern Railway system, William Marriott. It passes through many interesting landscapes and wildlife-rich habitats, such as the Wensum river valley and Whitwell Common. Along Marriott’s Way you may see a variety of birds, animals and plants including kestrels, owls, hares, deer, butterflies, orchids and even otters and kingfishers.
