Great walk and views
Oct 2020
This ain’t any bog this is Dersingham Bog, it’s actually a Nature Reserve.
If you get chance the chance then go, you won’t be disappointed.
The car parks aren’t actually car parks, more like lay-bys. But it’s free.
Head for the village of Wolferton, off the A149, either turn off will be okay, which is also wonderful.

A little known gem
Aug 2020
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A gem of a place (ignore the farm entrance at the beginning which is disgrace) just keep walking or cycling - the reward - the reward is an unspoilt open big sky view and a chance to see quiet a lot of wildlife - deer, hares, lots of birds, a plethora of fauna - be very, very careful crossing the A149. ENJOY

Excellent!

Ok, so it's called a bog, but that's unfair. It's a nature reserve. There are three waymarked walks. Join them together and it's about 2 miles. The bog itself has a boardwalk and this takes you out over the squishy bits! Then wander through the dappled sun in the woodland before returning to the car park.

We went twice!

A beautiful spot
Jan 2020 • Couples
A great reserve managed by Natural England that provides a range of environments to walk through. Wooded areas, heathland and bog ( of course) - on a boarded walkway. There are 3 short way marked walks with one affording great views over looking the bog. Limited parking over two road side parking areas but adequate.

So peaceful
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had just been to the Royal Railway station and just happen to find this on the way back , had a pleasant walk very quiet and peaceful , we kept the dog on the lead as it is a nature reserve watched the deer , rabbits squirrels and evan saw a fox , it seems to go for miles we did a circular walk the Cliff Top Stroll
which was quite flat , there is two car parks both very small so if you plan to visit at peak periods get there early .

Great walk with great views
Oct 2019
Was in King’s Lynn area and took a short trip out to this location. What a find! Parked at Wolferton parking spot and took the footpath from there. Along the path we was met with surprising views across the bog and far into the distance. Nice range of birdlife could be spotted and heard. Ideal for a short visit, nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Great place for walking
Sep 2019
If you like walking, then Dersingham Bog is the place for you. This biological and geological site of Special Scientific Interest is one of the few remaining "wilderness" areas in this part of Norfolk. It is very peaceful and we did not see anyone else whilst we were having our walk. There are well marked paths and car parks at Scissors Cross and Wolferton. Why not combine a visit to the Royal Station at Wolferton with a walk in the National Nature Reserve.

Some sort of decline ?
Aug 2019 • Solo
I saw very little here except the ubiquitous pigeons. Some sort of damage appears to have been suffered by this beautiful place. I wouldn't want to speculate whether this is linked to the local shooting regime

lovely tranquil walk
Apr 2019
If you want to spend an hour or two taking a peaceful and scenic walk then Dersingham Bog fits the bill. Several different routes marked out.
