River Gaywood – Seven Sisters Drain

Norfolk Rivers Trust, King’s Lynn Internal Drainage Board and the Borough Council have teamed up to improve an abandoned area of King’s Lynn. Seven Sisters Drain, which runs behind the football club has long been abandoned becoming a silted, overgrown dumping ground, being filled with everything from crisp packets to sofas.  Working together, the three organisations have dug out the silt to create a new winding channel, and are working with local volunteers and The College of West Anglia to plant the area with native marsh plants to create a wildlife haven.
