Visitors to the Broads will now be able follow in the footsteps of medieval monks with the opening of a new footpath.
The path will complete the link from St. Benet's Abbey to How Hill National Nature Reserve via Ludham Bridge,
This means that visitors will be able to trace the same path from St. Benet's Abbey to How Hill, just as monks of the abbey once did.
The path had existed years ago but flood defence work meant the original route had to be changed.
The Broads Authority have worked with landowners to negotiate access needed to create the new route.
Adrian Clarke, senior waterways and recreation officer said: 'The only direct route between the abbey and How Hill had been by boat, but now visitors can moor at either location and explore by foot, experiencing the wonderful landscape and the cultural heritage.'
The path will open on Tuesday May 2 followed by a guided walk.
