Other Notes This "little gem" of an area is very runnable with nearly NO BRAMBLES (bracken is getting a bit high in places but still fast). Lots of detail so we haven't mapped every blip in the surface. Big sand hills, small drainage ditches and man-eating bogs! Planning to avoid wettest area but you may still get wet feet. Is this the only area in Norfolk with a boulder on the map? Unused for about 20 years. Unlike anything else in Norfolk.
