EFFORTS to open up the 61-mile Weavers' Way long distance path between Great Yarmouth and Cromer has seen the launch of a new guidebook.

In a bid to boost the number of people who take advantage of shorter walks along the route, a booklet has been created offering 12 circular walks based on the path. It was given official sanction by Norfolk County Council leader Daniel Cox at the War Memorial Recreation Centre at Acle during a guided walk - a four-and-a-half mile jaunt around the local area.

The walks vary from three to ten miles and use different sections of the Weavers' Way. Seven can be accessed by bus and train and in places stiles have been replaced by kissing gates.

As well as maps and route directions, the guide includes information about surface, obstacles to expect, refreshment facilities and points of interest.

Copies are free from tourist information centres, from the council by e-mailing environment@norfolk.gov.uk or by calling 0344 800 8020.
