Hidden Heritage of the Gaywood River Project

Hidden Heritage of the Gaywood River is a £210,000 project to enhance a former landfill site at Lynnsport. It's been made possible by a National Lottery grant of nearly £94,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Project aim

The aim of the project is to create a new disabled-access footpath through the site, and to turn the site into wooded parkland with a wildflower meadow. Planting will increase the biodiversity of the area. The Norfolk Rivers Trust are also planning work to the river to include the installation of a pond-dipping platform. Interpretation panels and benches will also be installed.;

Project funding

While £94,000 is being provided by the HLF, thanks to money raised by National Lottery Players, the remaining project costs will be met by funding from the:

  • Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk
  • Norfolk Rivers Trust
  • Environment Agency

Events and activities

As part of the project, we're running a programme of free community archaeology outreach events for all the family. Many events have been taken place. Any upcoming events will be added on this webpage.
