The Route

This 1.5 mile short loop will take you from Loddon High Street right into to the Broads and back. The grazing marshes have a unique, serene ambience unchanged by passing years. Butterbur grows on the bank near the first footbridge – according to tradition its large leaves were used for wrapping butter. Keep an eye out for kingfishers just beyond the ruined sluice. If you look over towards Hardley you might see a marsh harrier soaring in the sky. Holy Trinity Church, dominates the surrounding meadows. Look out for sculptures – all objects are not what they seem! There is a shop, cafe’s and a pub on the high street and toilets are available at the car park by the market place and at the staithe.
