7 churches to stop by whilst cycling in the Norfolk Broads countryside

12.5 miles of easy cycling visiting the seven lovely ancient churches of the South Trinity Broads Benefice (with shorter 9.7 mile optional route)

The countryside surrounding the churches of the South Trinity Broads Benefice is an ideal place for cycling, offering quiet roads, gentle slopes and fresh air as well as the peaceful villages and ancient churches themselves.

Along the way there are places to stop and eat or drink, watch the boats go by on the River Bure at Stokesby, take a walk along the boardwalk beside the Broad at Filby, or, if you have time, visit the wildlife at Thrigby Hall.

The first five churches you will visit along the route are reached mainly along quiet country lanes and if you are not used to cycling, or have children with you, it is recommended that you follow the shorter route and, at Stokesby, return along Filby Road and back to the start. If, however, you wish to continue along the route and visit the churches at Billockby and Fleggburgh, please be aware that the route does include cycling along the very busy A1064 for a short distance and traffic here can be very heavy so great care must be taken.
