Route: Fen Rivers Way - Part 4
Littleport - River Great Ouse - Brandon Creek - Southery Fens - Ten Mile Bank - Denver Sluice - Downham Market

The fourth day along the Fen Rivers Way begins at Littleport and follows the Great Ouse River to Downham Market. Both places have train stations and ample parking so a linear walk can be completed with ease.


Just a few minutes out of Littleport and the Fen Rivers Way follows the riverbank of the Great Ouse witht he busy A10 right alongside. Its several miles of this and to behonest, its the worst part of the whole walk... made worse by reports of Hogweed growing here. If walking in summer find an alternative route!


A long line of Pylons.


A small country park at Brandon Creek.

Approaching Brandon Creek.

The Little Ouse River joins the Great Ouse at Brandon Creek.

The Ship Inn at Brandon Creek.

A little crossing of the river and im now in Norfolk!

Once in Norfolk the signposting becomes far better.

Finally away from the A10.


The bridge at 10 mile bank.


Crossing the bridge at 10 Mile Bank and joining the opposite side.

The railway bridge near Denver Sluice.

The river changes around here, with the riverbank becoming far more salt-marsh-like.

New signs for the route.
