What to see: Felmingham Cutting on the Weavers' Way is a Butterfly Nature Reserve, which has become populated with a wide variety of butterflies since the line closed, sixteen different species having been found here.
The whole cutting is managed to keep a series of different breeding areas for different species, and is very scenic.
This path follows the dismantled Midland and Great Northern Railway, forming a section of the Weavers Way, a long-distance footpath which links Cromer with Great Yarmouth; the path has a length of 90 kilometres and passes through the Norfolk Broads.
