Improving the River Waveney for people and wildlife

The River Waveney forms the county boundary between Norfolk and Suffolk and flows from its source at Redgrave to the sea at Great Yarmouth. It is a classic lowland river, slow flowing and meandering until it becomes tidal as part of the Southern Broads. Joining the River Yare, the Waveney becomes Breydon Water and forms a magnificent estuarine landscape before flowing the final length to the North Sea.

The River Waveney Trust was formed in 2012 with a vision to ensure that the waters, habitats and catchment of the river are healthy for wildlife and people. We aim to achieve this by working collaboratively on a range of projects which will protect, enhance and promote the river and its catchment. We are proud members of the national umbrella organisation for river charities in the UK and Ireland - The Rivers Trust.
