This whole official walk would normally be 8.5 miles long and take 4 hours. We did our own route which was approximately 4 miles and 2 hours long. After just coming back from our walking holiday, we were quite tired by the end!
We parked in the town and walked down the main shopping street to the harbour. Just for a change, the tide was in:
Eventually we returned to Wells via the old High Street, a street we hadn't seen before. This must once have been the main shopping area in days gone by. Each house in the street was painted a slightly different pastel shade. All seemed to be early 18th Century and quite obviously, most had once been shops.

The cafe we normally eat at, near Holkham Hall is closed and being turned into 10 new bedrooms for the Victorian Pub. We drove to the Hall itself and had lunch in their main cafe - Sausage Baguettes, DB had chilli.
Arthur Howells Butchers in the main shopping street is renowned for his meat as mentioned previously on a post. They always have something on offer. First time it was half price beef joints, last time pork chops, this time sausages. Whenever you eat sausages at any of the Holkham cafes, these are the ones they serve, known as Wells mix.
They were on offer at 6 for £2. We bought 12 of the Wells variety, 6 of Wells Smuggler and 6 of Wells Old English:
