River Gaywood

The Gaywood is a river of contrasts, rising in springs between Grimston and Gayton, travelling through rich farmland and allotments before disappearing under the centre of King’s Lynn and finally joining the Great Ouse.  It is one of Norfolk’s more accessible rivers, and also one the most densely populated catchments.  Even in the centre of King’s Lynn it is rich with wildlife, with many species of fish, aquatic plant and insect visible at any time, and with water voles and otters occasionally reported.
