River Waveney – tidal sections – Dunburgh

There is no longer any roadside parking for day ticket holders as the lay-by by the steps is now a designated passing place.

High tide at the top of the tidal reach is about the same as at London Bridge – you can check the tide times here.

The river is subject to winter flooding. Before you travel you may wish to check this website – Flood alerts – Bungay

Situated between Beccles and Bungay on the Norfolk side of the river in a beautiful wooded area and a veritable wildlife paradise.

A really cracking stretch! Partly wooded, deep, with Norfolk reeds and reasonable boat traffic.

A good float water with a good head of fish including some big Perch which can top 2lb.

A total of 20 swims are available, 16 of which have purpose built staging.

A members only car park, for six cars, has been constructed at the bottom of the hill, close to the river. Access is through the original padlocked gateway, down a made track and through a second padlocked gate.

Please ensure ALL gates are properly closed and padlocked after entry and exit.

There is a separate padlock number for the top gate. It is available through an automated email system – click HERE to obtain it.

Please be aware there is a well used public footpath running along the river bank and members must allow walkers full access along the path.
