Two Walks with a difference at former Norfolk airbase

Want to get fit while learning about the  history of the former  Coltishall Air Base?

At 10.30am on Thursday 28 May and Tuesday 25 August, members of the public have the chance to walk around the perimeter of the former airbase (now Scottow Enterprise Park) while at the same time see and hear about the rich heritage the site has to offer.

The ‘Informative Walk and Talk’ later this month will be 3.1miles, and the event in August will be slightly longer at 4.2 miles.   Both events provide accessibility for people in wheelchairs and motorised buggies as the routes will be on tarmac.

Both walks are being organised by David Gurney, Historic Environment Manager at Norfolk County Council with members of the Spirit of Coltishall Association (SoCA) as expert guides, providing an opportunity for people to see many of the airfield buildings, including the hangars, a spitfire pen and the control tower.
