Autumn Walks: Taverham Mill in Norfolk

Hello and welcome to Autumn! Isn’t it wonderful?

Here’s a few photos of what I’ve been up to so far this season. Recently I visited Taverham Mill in Norfolk. Here is a nature reserve on my doorstep that I didn’t even know about (because I thought it was just a fishery, which it is also is, but in the last few years has been deemed a nature reserve in its own right.)

The 100 acre site contains 4 lakes and is situated along the river Wensum, an SSSI. The highlight of my walk was certainly hanging out with the highland cattle, which have horns and an impressive fringe and are so gentle and calm.

If you’re interested in the history of the site, have a look at this site about Norfolk mills.

    1. Oh no really? I thought they had inadvertently skirted the Wensum because land owners in Ringland wouldn’t allow the road through their nice pretty villages. (That would actually have been the only convenient part for me of this damn NDR!)

    1. Well you are quite correct. I visited somewhere recently with actual longhorn cattle and have confused the two. I will amend and send myself off for re-education! :D

    1. Hi Michael, I should have explained (everyone hates acronyms!) it stand for Site of Special Scientific Interest, which usually means it’s a location with a rare or endangered species of flora or fauna.
