a series of history walks using old maps and historical information

Do you ever wonder why certain tracks and paths exist, or how the Enclosure of 1805-12 altered the landscape of Martham?  This is an opportunity to find out.

The walks must be booked in advance. They will be between two and three miles in length and we will walk at about two miles an hour. They will start from places where you can park and will begin at 10.30 in the morning.  Sturdy shoes will be needed.  When they are planned they will be highlighted here.  If you need to know more, contact

Other walks of interest without a guide can be found here which is our history trail, and here, which is a set of historical footpaths complete with photos and description.
