Hospital staff and volunteers, Serco staff, Norfolk County Council’s Trails team, and students from Easton and Otley College created the walk for staff and visitors.

“Insect hotels” have also been created to encourage wildlife and picnic seating will be installed later in the year. The walk follows a path around two thirds of the circumference of the 64 acre site.

John Fry, chairman of the hospital, said: “We would like to thank the volunteers for their contribution in creating the woodland walk which will enhance the facilities on our site and provide a peaceful area for walks away from the busy hospital environment.”

David Yates, Norfolk County Council’s senior trails officer, added: “It’s well-documented that contact with green spaces can be beneficial to health and wellbeing. This new walk makes great use of the hospital’s grounds - and particularly its woodland belt. It’s a wonderful new facility and will bring all the benefits of going for a walk in the woods to both staff and visitors”.
