A group of new trails launched to honour Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year-reign all boast unique reasons to pay them a visit.

The Platinum Jubilee Trails are opening five new locations throughout the county to ramblers and cyclists alike.

They have been created to be within reach in all parts of Norfolk and combine some existing and improved rights of way, together with the opening of a completely new route that previously had no public access.
