For those approaching on foot:

Pigneys Wood is approximately 1 miles NNE of North Walsham and accessible from our Hall Lane car park, and from Bacton road (B1150) via the banks of the North Walsham and Dilham Canal, by two footbridges.  Access may also be gained via the disused railway embankment which is part of Paston Way and the Butterfly Walk. It lies within the parish of Knapton, a rural village, situated at the northern end of Hall Lane. It is well signed from Knapton (Hall Lane) and from North Walsham (at the Bacton Road intersection and at both ends of Crow Road)
