Walk description:

This is a Community Nature Reserve and a SSSI site. It has a Visitor Centre with displays, toilets, leaflets, etc. and Parking adjacent. The actual boardwalk is down a lane, but take your vehicle down the lane as it is rough for wheelchairs. The boardwalk is delightful, linking hides (Woodland Hide and Fen Hide) and viewing platforms. It wends its way through natural woodland, flowers and undergrowth, and leads to the River Wensum. This walk is of interest to the naturalist, keen on wildflowers, butterflies, dragonflies, birdlife, etc. Take your binoculars!
