Calling all explorers in Norfolk.

Some brand new technology has opened up our county's trails to virtual voyagers.

For the very first time, Google Street View images allows people to explore our National Trail through Street View's 360-degree images.

 

 

The entire 84 miles of the stunning Norfolk Coast Path was filmed with Google's Trekker camera over the summer of 2018

To accompany the launch of the images is a short video telling the story of the how the pictures were gathered.

The film, made by a local videographer, showcases the route and range of landscapes found along the way.

 

 

Cllr Martin Wilby, Chairman of Norfolk County Council's Environment, Development and Transport Committee, said:

"Opening-up these stunning walking routes for people to explore virtually is a first for the East of England.

Allowing people to take a peek at the trails online is a great way for people to discover Norfolk, and I very much hope many people will come to visit our lovely county to see all that there is to offer.

One thing that strikes many people is how accessible so many of the routes are.

Norfolk has a reputation for being a bit flat but that combined with all our work to improve our gold standard Norfolk Trails means the routes are great places to visit that are open to all."
