The Ingol is a chalk stream in North Norfolk which runs from its source in Sherneborne through a predominantly rural catchment until its mouth close to Snettisham RSPB Nature Reserve. Towards the headwaters of the stream agriculture is represented by low intensity grazing by cattle and captive red deer, with arable fields at a distance from the stream. A section of the river passes through Ingoldisthorpe and Snettisham providing scenic nature walks for the community. Below Snettisham, intensive arable agriculture borders the stream and the Ingol has been modified to such an extent that it has almost no ecological value.
