Perhaps almost as importantly, the Gaywood Valley offers people a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, a place to experience and connect with the natural world. Indeed, many first-time visitors to NWT Roydon Common
are amazed that such a peaceful area of near-wilderness exists right on the fringes of King’s Lynn. Alongside this flagship nature reserve there are also many other popular local places to discover, including Bawsey Country Park, Reffley Wood, and, in the heart of King’s Lynn itself, Harding’s Pits and The Walks – the only surviving 18th
-century town walk in Norfolk.
Whether it’s taking a stroll, a bike ride, or just sitting and watching the local wildlife pass by, the Gaywood Valley is a source of pleasure and inspiration to the thousands of people who live in and visit this wonderful Living Landscape.
