Ingoldisthorpe Explorer Cycling Loop

Nearby the track is the Church of St Michael and All Angels at Ingoldisthorpe is said to have been built deliberately lopsided, as only God is perfect! Next is the small attractive village of Shernborne on the Sandringham estate as is Anmer, its Church dedicated to St Mary. Take care crossing the (B1153) Great Bircham to Flitcham road on the way to Houghton. The Tumuli (ancient burial mounds) should also be visible along this section of road. Follow the signs for Houghton Hall, which is open to the public during the summer and near the entrance is the church is St Martins. As you cycle alongside Houghton Hall park watch out for the striking white fallow deer. At Great Bircham the Kings Head and Bircham Windmill (seasonal opening) offer refreshments.
