Chedgrave Staithe

(Last visited August 2020)

I’ve had a lot of chats with people recently about wheelchair accessible walks and am determined to find more. I’ve been directing people to the Norfolk Trails Access Tested routes – and this is one of them, as I wanted to give it a go (you can find it under the “Wherryman’s Way” link on their page). The only point of difference I noted was that on their audit the church car park was hardcore whereas now it is stones. But there is alternative parking at Chet Stores.

We did an out and back, 1 mile each way (it was🔥and no shade, be warned!) and were hoping to do the extra (less accessible) stretch to the Hardley Flood viewing point, but alas that stretch was overgrown (but we found a superb climbing tree). But the walk itself was lovely – along the river, compact path, reeds, wildflowers, butterflies, bees and dragonflies 🌾🌺🦋🐝

Really pretty. Pye’s Mill the other side of the river and Loddon Staithe are also lovely picnic spots 💚
