Get to know your local river

gaywood river walk

The Norfolk Rivers Trust are offering a 4.5 mile on Sunday March 23 which follows the River Gaywood as it winds its way from Reffley Wood through King’s Lynn to the Great Ouse.

The River Gaywood provides a vital wildlife corridor to link green spaces and bring wildlife into the heart of the town.

Spring fed chalk rivers are a globally rare and declining habitat and King’s Lynn is fortunate to have one flowing through the town.

In the company of an expert guide, walkers will follow the river, find out about the
pressures facing chalk rivers, what can be done to help the natural functioning of them, look out for wildlife along the way, and finally see how man has historically used the river at Mill Fleet at the end.

The walk takes place from 10am to 1pm, staring at the Sandy Lane entrance to Reffley Wood and finishing at Boal Quay, followed by coffee and cake at Marriott’s Warehouse.

The walk and refreshments are free but booking is required. Contact Gemma Clark at gemma.clark@norfolk.gov.uk or phone 07768 031629.
