Advertising feature – Waveney Valley Lakes, Norfolk

WAVENEY Valley Lakes is a beautiful 60 acre park with 11 lakes, nestled in the Norfolk countryside on the Norfolk/Suffolk border in the village of Wortwell.

The lakes at Waveney were excavated in 1942 in order to provide the materials for the construction of many local airfields for the Allied Air Forces war effort. The fishery itself owes its origins to the 1960s when thousands of carp, tench and bream were introduced into the lakes. Waveney Valley Lakes was soon recognised as something very special and many well-known anglers made the complex famous by publicising captures of very big fish. Many of today’s top carp anglers have fished Waveney extensively and have caught several of the named fish which are still in evidence today. More than ten miles of circular footpath walks have been designated by the Wortwell Parish Council. There are numerous species of birds to see including lapwing, pheasant, partridge, kestrel, sparrowhawk, barn owl, snipe and swans. Along the marsh and river, mallard, moorhen, heron and even kingfisher are commonly seen and the marsh plants include orchids. As a mature fishery, Waveney is a natural haven for wildlife. Resident pairs of kingfishers thrive on site and we are host to a galalxy of bird life including all three types of woodpeckers, treecreepers, owls, herons, grebes and three species of bats. Visiting birds oberved at the site have included red kite, buzzard, sparrowhawk and goldcrest. In September 2008, anglers were treated to the sight of an osprey feeding on several occasions. Waveney Valley Lakes is a member of the British Holiday & Park Homes Association, the park industry’s official body. The park is also a ‘Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award Park’. This covers various environmental issues, ranging from aspects such as the care of hedgerows and wild flowers to the siting of bird-boxes as well as other issues which do not directly effect the immemdiate environment, but which are important in overall conservation terms, such as re-cycling waste. This is the perfect place to find tranquility of mind, happiness in your soul at one with the birds, butterflies, ducks and geese. A haven in which to watch each season unfolding, inspiration for fishermen, photographers, crafters and artists, a retreat from a bustling world.
