As you turn into the homestead of the watermill over the bridge down a one-way track and following the duck pond you find your way through some sharp right angled turns which takes you up to Norfolk coast footpath, or alternatively you can walk along the field separating you from the main road right up to the coastal path and Burnham Overy. A bridleway also skirts the edge of the site across the river burn and into the salt marsh area.
