This energising walk is full of variety; from stunning parkland to vast open farmland and canopies of woodland, you will experience a landscape flourishing in the clutches of the Nar Valley.
Lexham is well known locally for its beautiful flint churches. St Andrew's of East Lexham, dates from the 11th century and has unique bell openings hewn out of single pieces of stone. Inside there is a beautiful 20th century war memorial. Visitors may be interested to take part in the Round Towered Churches Trail: information brochures available from the church or from the local Tourist Information Centre.
Lexham Hall was first built in the 17th century and remodelled twice in the 18th century when the landscape park was also laid out. It was used by the Royal Army Service Corps in World War Two. Following the acquisition of the estate by Mr and Mrs William Foster in 1946, the renaissance of Lexham Hall was brought about by distinguished Norwich architect, James Fletcher-Watson. The estate covers 4,436 acres, including the 60-acre Litcham Common that was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1984.
