The steep valley terrace steps on the Norfolk and Suffolk border have been fitted with a handrail to make it an easier hike.

The work was managed by Peter James of the Norfolk Ramblers, with assistance from its members and the Beccles branch of the River Waveney Trust. Funding was provided by Norfolk trails, Norfolk Ramblers, and Geldeston and Gillingham parish council.
