Churches along the Wherryman’s Way

The Wherryman’s Way is a Long Distance Path in the Broads National Park . Crossing the park from east to west, it leads up-river from Great Yarmouth to Norwich. Well placed accommodation and good public transport links make it possible to divide the 38 miles into a series of shorter day walks.

Surlingham Churches –  There is a circular walk that takes in both churches and a riverside pub.  The ruins of St Saviour’s Church overlook Church Marsh. The naturalist Ted Ellis is buried in the churchyard. Ted described the Broads as “a breathing space for the cure of souls” and so it is.  St Mary’s is a round towered church, very much lived and prayed in. It too displays a variety of styles from earlier dates, including a west gallery.
