|Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?|
|Worth seeing in Hingham is St Andrew's church, which was built in the late 14th century. In Wymondham there is plenty shops, pubs and public toilets. Worth looking at Market Cross and the Town Museum (Britain's first model prison). Nice place for lunch to is a restored railway station themed tea rooms close to the main station. Finally just south of Deopham is an ex WW2 USAAF airfield. Used actively in 1942 it is now abandoned but can still be visited by the public.

|The directions given above are very difficult to follow, but the route is simple enough if you look at the map- I cycle most parts of it regularly and rarely see much traffic. |
Not sure about the detours away from High Oak off the direct route between Deopham & Wymondham as the dircet route is rather nice too (good birdwatching). Agree the Station Tea Rooms in Wymondham are worth visiting- they're actually on the Platform at the Station.
Mid Norfolk Railway enroute takes cycles and stops at Wymondham, Kimberley, Thuxton, Yaxham & Dereham, shorten or make the route a figure of 8 by catching the train from Wymondham to Thuxton (steam in the summer).
