Into the woods

Enjoy the glorious and varied colours of the seasons as you take a walk through some of North Norfolk’s enchanting woodland

Foxley Wood, at Foxley, is Norfolk’s largest remaining ancient woodland. Look out for the pale-yellow primroses in early spring and then the carpets of bluebells from mid-April through to early May.

At Thursford Wood, near Little Snoring, the spring colour is followed by summer ferns and the autumnal hues of the oak trees, some of which are believed to be over 500 years old.

Bacton Woods date back to Saxon times and present glorious greens within conifer plantation, mixed woodland and open space. The woods are thought to include more than 30 species of tree. There is a picnic area.

And at Pretty Corner Woods, on the outskirts of Sheringham, you might see red campion or the white tips of wood sorrel, as well as a spectrum of beautiful butterflies.
