I am a professional photographer operating in Aylsham. Aylsham is an attractive historic market town situated on the banks of the River Bure about 9 miles north of Norwich. The weaving of cloth brought prosperity to the town in medieval times. Aylsham linens and canvases were nationally known.
Aylsham welcomes visitors. There is much free parking and the town has lots of facilities for local people and tourists. It is a great destination for walking and cycling. The Marroitt’s Way at 26 miles long, follows the track bed of the railway line which ran between Norwich and Aylsham finishing at the Bure Valley Railway Station. The 61 miles walking route called The Weavers Way from Cromer to Great Yarmouth passes through Aylsham. The Bure Valley Path meets with the Marriott’s Way. It is 9 miles in length and follows much of the Bure Valley Railway between Aylsham and Wroxham.
The 15 inch gauge Bure Valley Railway opened in 1990 and is mainly operated by steam locomotives. The railway runs for 9 miles between Aylsham and Wroxham with stations at Brampton, Buxton and Colitishall. The journey time is approximately 45 minutes. I like to take the train one way and walk back.
