Loddon Marshes

What’s it like?
Two routes where a short walk will take you from the High Street to the Broads. The grazing marshes have a unique, serene ambience unchanged by passing years.

What wildlife lives there?
Butterbur grows on the bank near the first footbridge – according to tradition its large leaves were used for wrapping butter. Keep an eye out for kingfishers just beyond the ruined sluice. If you look over towards Hardley you might see a marsh harrier soaring in the sky.

What else is there to see?
Holy Trinity Church, which dominates the surrounding meadows. It has local history displays and the grounds are managed for wildlife interest.

Did you know?
Look out for sculptures – all objects are not what they seem!
