To celebrate the launch of The Great British Walk this weekend, the National Trust has revealed the top ten secret trails that can only be accessed by foot, with Sheringham Park in Norfolk making the list.
The list has been carefully selected by experts at the National Trust to showcase unique walking experiences. This comes following new research, which found that 82% of people in the East of England like discovering new places when on a walk, with 60% describing a feeling of euphoria on reaching an amazing viewpoint.
According to the survey’s findings in the East of England, 70% of people say that walking makes them happy; despite this, 67% wish they got out and walked more. And from those surveyed, 84% of those asked believe they walked more as a child than their children do today.
“We’re delighted that Sheringham Park was selected as one of the top ten British Walks, and we hope The Great British Walk this year encourages people to experience new places on foot. Hopefully our top ten list shows there is something for everyone to enjoy in the outdoors. We’ve got several easy to follow walks around the Park and more at National Trust places across the region, we hope the public will join in and get exploring,” said keith Zealand, Head Ranger at Sheringham Park.
The National Trust is encouraging everyone to join in with the campaign, get out for a walk and share their walking photos on twitter, instagram and facebook at #GBwalk To find out more and download a walk visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greatbritishwalk.
