This walk will take you around Whitlingham Park, the nearby woods and Whitlingham nature reserve. Meeting at UEA, you'll travel to the country park to begin the walk.
The route enters a small woodland of poplars and willows before passing through an open area of grassland that leads to the nature reserve, giving you an opportunity to experience classic broadland wildlife.
Lucas will also show you the church ruins that are hidden in the woods.
What to expect; various terrain around the broad with some shaper steep uphill and some steps.
Approximate walking time 2 ½ hrs the walk will be at an easy relaxed pace, but unfortunately not suitable for people with walking disabilities that require crutches or a wheelchair.
There are facilities at the visitors centre that can be used. Good Footwear is recommended, expect a bit of mud and dress appropriately for the weather. Remember to bring water / drink and snacks for a short break along the way.

What is Do Something Different?
The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures!
There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
If you had a great time at a DSD event, make sure you head to the website and leave your feedback and stories! Tell us about your ideas and what you want to see under Do Something Different.
