The Fourteenth Norfolk Family Walk for Brain Tumours is being held at Holkham Hall Estate, near Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23 1RH, on Sunday 4th October 2020 from 10 am to 4pm. There is ample parking on the estate - a £4 car park fee is charged which is redeemable at the shop.

This walk, which is growing in popularity year by year, is in aid of brain tumour research and support and has a choice of distances - one, three, six or ten miles - to suit all ages and abilities. All are through the beautiful parkland, beside the lake and through the woods where deer can be seen grazing. There are no hills to climb on any of the walks and dogs on leads are welcome.

The one mile walk is aimed at children. This walk is suitable for prams and wheelchairs as it is all on a hard surface.

The three mile walk takes you around the beautiful lake where a great variety of wildfowl can be seen - this walk is a favourite with many people with children as there is so much to see!

The ten mile walk also takes in the seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea with its quaint shops and lovely quay where you can stop for a drink or partake in the traditional enjoyment of fish and chips sitting on the wall and watching the world go by (if you're not it too much of a hurry of course!) After a walk on the bank path towards the sea, you will find a café where you can enjoy an ice cream or coffee to refresh you before walking alongside the pine trees which mark the start of your return journey to Holkham (there are toilets here too).

If you are planning to do the ten mile walk, it is advisable to get to the start around 10am to allow ample time to finish by 4pm. If you are doing one of the shorter walks, it's ok to arrive later. A map is available to assist you on your way and the route is well signposted too.

Once the registration fee of £5 has been paid (children free), walkers are then free to support the brain tumour charity of their choice. For further details please see
