The final leg brings us to the Abbey gates on quiet roads and bridle paths. A total of 8 miles.
Until we turn left off the Stibbard Road, we remain in the Wensum catchment area. When we arrive at Little Snoring church, we will have crossed the watershed. What appears to be nothing more than a ditch at the foot of the churchyard eventually flows into the River Stiffkey. We will cross the river as we arrive at Great Snoring and once again as we come into Walsingham. Unlike the muddy ditch, the river here is crystal clear and full of life ! Thanks, to dedicated work of the Norfolk Rivers Trust.
Pilgrims planning to arrive at Walsingham’s Slipper Chapel can follow an alternative, Great Snoring to Slipper Chapel detour to cross the river at Haughton, St. Giles.
