Transitions in nature can be fascinating, particularly where mankind is involved. Walking some distance of a river is a wonderful way in viewing how much a landscape can change, be that with changes in the natural environment due to location, weather and wildlife or changes in mankind’s appropriation and use of the waterway. Suffolk has many rivers and ‘broads’, despite Norfolk being the most famous anglian county for the waterways, with River Waveney acting as the natural boarder between the two counties. The river itself meets Oulton Broad which then links to Lake Lothing at Lowestoft where the river water finally meets the sea.
On Boxing Day I set off exploring the edge of this natural route from where the river meets the broad and made my way from reedbeds through to marinas, derelict industrial land, locks, gates, bridges and eventually the beach, the sea and the most easterly point of the United Kingdom.
