Our Logo

It was under the control of the monks of St. Benet’s that the peat was dug to create the Broads.

Whether you take a romantic view and believe the site to have been the home of hermits as early as the 8th century, or believe the foundation to be as late as the 11th century, the monastery was ancient.  It was  founded centuries before the Reformation and is part of our common Christian heritage.

On the first Sunday in August an ecumenical service is celebrated on the site

  1. I would very much like a programme of your walks and wonder whether there are any walks that are shorter than four miles.

    • There’s no programme as such. Different people lead them on different occasions and the guide line is 4 miles – sometimes they turn out to be less
