18971Photo #18971This footpath link across the A10 is marked as a cycle path but is very poor. It SHOULD be a very useful little link into Downham Market from the villages to the east, but ...

The path is steep.
The path is narrow.
There is an awkward stagger.

It doesn't need to be this way. Solution:

Widen the path, remove the stagger, put down a smooth surface and sign it so that people know it is there,

18972Photo #18972This footpath link to the A10 is marked as a cycle path at one end but is poor. It SHOULD be a very useful little link into Downham Market from the villages to the east, but ... it is narrow and overgrown, and the exit to the A10 is very poor. See #18971

Straight through the bollards and down to the road infront of the house.

18974Photo #18974How do you know you are on a National Cycle Route ? The dreadful surface.

Is this the best we can manage ? It gets worse over the bridge into Downham Market where it is nothing but a narrow, dirt bridlepath.

18978Photo #18978How do you know you are omn a National Cycle Route ?

Because it is narrow and poorly surfaced. Or not surfaced at all in this case.

We can do better than this. 3m wide, sealed surface, vegetation cut back. That is the MINIMUM standard for a cycle path.

18980Photo #18980NCN11 through Downham Market is very well signed. Not only with official finger posts, but the local route ranger has obviously ben busy with sticky route signs at every turning.

Shame about the narrow path and poor surfaces as you head south.

Ryston End is perfect for cycling - quiet and leafy. Unfortunately the quality of the route takes a serious nose dive as you head south out of town.

18982Photo #18982This is where NCN11 should go, straight up the High Street, but it is one way. So you have to cycle all the way around the one way system.

Is it really so important that the van has a place to park ? Why isn't there two way cycling ? Have a look in Manual for Streets for where our priorities should lie.

18983Photo #18983Downham Market is a pleasant market town, that has been marred like many others by a needless one way system. Here, people on NCN11 have to take a tour of the town via that same one way system.

Why ?

It allows the streets to be used as a linear car park. Check Manual for Streets for how priorities should be arranged.

36525Photo #36525Burnham Market - National Cycle Network 1 - sign

Location: , Burnham Market (England, United Kingdom)

This is the village of Burnham Market in Norfolk.

Burnham Market is one of the Burnhams, a group of adjacent villages in North Norfolk. It is the result of the merger of three of the original Burnham villages, namely Burnham Sutton, Burnham Ulph and Burnham Westgate.

I found this National Cycle Network sign for NCN 1 opposite the Church of St Mary.
