Walking GPS warning for Norfolk
Bookmark and Share
Those using a walking GPS on the Peddars Way or Norfolk Coastal Path long-distance walks have been advised to be aware of the signals being jammed in one part of the area next month.

Ofcom has warned the army will be blocking signals near the Stanford military training base near Thetford, which could cause navigational problems for walkers, Grough reports.

As well as using a GPS to help ensure they stay on track, walkers could obtain Ordnance Survey maps of the area to ensure they are sticking to the path and heading the right way.

The jamming is not permanent, but will be occurring between September 19th to 23rd between 06:00 and 09:00 BST and 16:00 and 19:30 BST, with the possibility of further signal blockage in October.

Despite its name, the Norfolk Coastal Path actually starts in Suffolk, at Knettishall Heath Country Park.

Those following the route can join the Peddars Way at Holme, with the two trails combined making up a 93-mile route.
