Cross the bridge and then turn right and follow the bank of the canal. That's the left hand bank in this picture taken from the bridge.

You will see the East Ruston Arm of the canal branch off on the far side. Just keep following the canal bank.

Keep following the canal. The waterway gets quite narrow in places, but the bankside path is good and well marked if a bit muddy in places.

Eventually, you will come to Honing Lock. Turn right across the bridge and go straight ahead rollowing the path.

This path crosses another bridge and then joins the Weaver's Way again. turn left and retrace your steps back to Honing Bridge and Honing Common.

If you are going to this walk by car, park at honing Common. The nearest mooring is at Dilham. Either walk up Honing Road to Honing Bridge or follow Broad Fen Lane to Tonnage Bridge.
Alternatively (and lots of fun), hire canoes at Wayford Bridge and paddle to Tonnage Bridge or Honing Lock to start the walk.
It can be muddy near the canal, wear good boots.
You can extend the walk out to East Ruston where the Butcher's Arms does good food. Ordnance survey OL40 map will help.

This is one of my favourite walks. I hope it is of interest.

Thanks for these Nigel. I think the photo's add to the interest as well and make it more like a 'virtual' walk. You could never get that from a map. It's also useful for advice, for instance if there are muddy parts of the path. Please keep them coming, if they are on the same thread they should be easy to print off. Like the refreshment bit as well. Car parking/mooring advice is also very useful.

Just one final suggestion, would it be possible to give a rough idea of distance? This would be useful to me not being so familiar with the area.

Many thanks

Howard

Hi Howard

Glad to hear that you find these of interest.

The Potter walk is 2.3 miles although it can be shorter or longer depending on the option you take.

The Tonnage Bridge walk is 4 miles for the circle to and from Honing Common. More if you walk from the moorings.

Thanks for that Nigel, they sound ideal distance wise. Could they be done at any time of the year given suitable footwear? The reason I ask is that we may be down for a week in December but land based, so a walk or two sounds a good idea.

Many thanks

Howard
