The Weavers' Way is 61-mile (98 km) long distance footpath in Norfolk, England.[1]

Route[edit]

The way close to Blickling

The Weavers' Way runs from Cromer to Great Yarmouth. It passes through Hanworth, Aylsham, North Walsham. Worstead, Stalham, Potter Heigham, Thurne and Halvergate before crossing the marshes around Berney Arms and skirting the northern edge of Breydon Water where it shares the same route as the Wherryman's Way.[2]

The name Weavers' Way comes from the cloth industry that was once a major industry in the area before the industrial revolution.

At Cromer, the Weavers' Way links with the North Norfolk Coastal Path, and at Great Yarmouth it joins the Angles Way. Combined with the Peddars Way the trails make a circuit around Norfolk.
