Desert Rat woodland dog walk, Norfolk


An easy to spot forest dog walk just a bit south of Swaffham, and an interesting bit of military history too.


GPS coords for car park: 52.5380, 0.6713 Parking is to the left as you enter. Information boards about the Desert Rats. No facilities or bins.


The tank memorial is for the 7th Armoured Division, known as the Desert Rats. They were based here during World War 2.  The 2 mile Desert Rat walking trail starts from the side of the interpretation board by the tank.
