This walk follows mainly footpaths in the sandy Brecks area, once characterised by open windblown areas, now typically planted with pine woodland following WW1. Archaeological features abound on this walk: the campsite at Thorpe Woodlands was the site of a mediaeval settlement until the early eighteenth century; the Peddars Way shows one of the best examples of 'agger' (the raised embankment which supported the Roman Road) can be seen; at West Harling Heath, Bronze Age burial grounds or tumuli can be seen.
