The picturesque river Wensum takes its name from Old English word for ‘winding’; and is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation.
Join the incredibly knowledgeable guide Carl Chapman, Chairman of the Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists’ Society on a nature walk (approximately 3.5 miles long TBC) through the Wensum Valley. We’ll start our walk near the location of the old Lenwade Railway station and follow the Wensum Way on a beautiful spring time walk. This is an excellent place to see waterfowl, dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies, we’ll keep an eye out for amphibians, as well as appreciating the reserve’s wide variety of plant life.
Places are free but limited, so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
