Bure Navigation

Bure Navigation

There is a continuous footpath between Coltishall Lock and Cradle Bridge at Burgh-next-Aylsham. This is generally in good order and regularly used by local people and visitors. The footpath can be accessed at various points along its length and can, therefore, be incorporated into several circular walks. Bure Navigation Conservation Trust has erected six interpretation boards along its length. These were funded by the trust, a LEADER fund grant and Norfolk Broads Direct via a Love the Broads grant. 

The new section of footpath which connects the southern outskirts of Aylsham to the River Bure at Dunkirk is now complete. The trust has designed two further interpretation boards here, funded by Barratt and David Wilson Homes. It is a long-term goal of the trust to facilitate the provision of additional rights-of-way access between this new footpath and Cradle Bridge at Burgh. BNCT is opposing EA’s ‘flood alleviation’ plans, which might destroy some of the historic character of the former navigation.
