Nunnery Lakes Reserve

Situated to the south of Thetford between the Rivers Thet and Little Ouse,Nunnery Lakes is owned and managed by the BTO.A series of lakes created by old gravel workings, and a rich variety of Breckland habitats lie within a relatively small area. Dry, sandy heathland, wet woodland and flood meadow, are home to a remarkable range of resident and seasonal wildlife.
Around 60 species breed here including Water Rail, Curlew, Barn Owl and Kingfisher. There are Water Vole, Otter, Grass Snake, Common Lizard and a wide variety of butterflies and dragonflies.
The reserve is open during daylight hours and free for people to visit and quietly enjoy the countryside. Apart from Arlington Way, paths are unsuitable for wheelchairs but access can be arranged by contacting in advance. There are three entrances, each with an information panel and map.

A path runs along the River Thet from Arlington Way across a meadow to Nunn’s Bridges, where there is parking beside the Little Ouse. The path continues south along the Little Ouse to a second bridge where a left turn, away from the river, leads to a kissing gate on the right, and a track which runs to the lakes. From the car park at the BTO, Nunnery Place leads to a track to the river, and beyond the bridge the kissing gate to the lakes is on the right.
