Lakenham Way

Lakenham Way is an attractive walking and cycling path that runs through Lakenham between Sandy Lane and Brazengate on the edge of the city centre. It forms part of the city’s cycle network carrying both the yellow and purple pedalways. It was created in the late 1990s and follows the route of an old railway line. There are impressive brick railway structures and wildlife to be seen. 

We often receive reports of problems on Lakenham Way and it is important that these are referred to the right place. 

Lakenham Way is owned by Railway Paths Ltd who lease it to Sustrans. Most problems should be reported to Sustrans at Sustrans organise regular grass cutting and litter picks.

Other issues and how to report them

Problems that relate to bins should be reported to Norwich City Council.

Anti-social behaviour should also be reported to the city council using the online form.

Street lighting problems should be reported to Norfolk County Council. When reporting street lighting problems please include the reference number on the column.      

We’re aware there is incorrect signage on Lakenham Way so there is no need to report this. There is a project planned involving Sustrans, Norfolk County Council and the city council to upgrade the cycle wayfinding on the yellow pedalway between Harford and the city centre.  


The Lakenham and Town Close Green Spaces Group organise volunteers to carry out litter picks and other work on Lakenham Way. If you would like to get involved they can be contacted at
