Portrait of the Waveney Valley
Portrait of the Waveney Valley
  • Description
  • Related

Straddling the boundary between Norfolk and Suffolk, the Waveney Valley is one of lowland England’s treasures. From the source of the River Waveney, near the timeless Redgrave and Lopham Fen, to its confluence with the River Yare below historic Burgh Castle, the river winds its way through an agricultural landscape of great antiquity.

Along its meandering course, magnificent churches and timber-framed buildings peep through trees or punctuate a horizon of wide skies, marking settlements and farmsteads and the delightful market towns of Diss, Harleston, Bungay, and Beccles.

The WaveneyValley means different things to different people. To some it is the low-lying and gently sloping lands immediately beside the River Waveney. To others it includes parishes and settlements expanding well away from the river’s course. For most it is more of a general ‘idea’, with no particular boundary at all.

In no way does this detract from the charms of this un-crowded slice of England, or from the passions of those who identify with the character and quality of this simply delightful place. Ian Carstairs’ photographic journey along the Norfolk and Suffolk border forms a perfect souvenir for visitors and residents alike who take the time to discover that the best of rural England is alive and well, throughout the Waveney Valley.

Ian Carstairs has been widely involved, both voluntarily and professionally, with the natural, built and cultural heritage of town and countryside and has spearheaded many major conservation and community projects and campaigns. Ian has used photography extensively as an essential tool in his work, and is the author of several of Halsgrove’s books, notably on the North York Moors, Yorkshire Coast,York, Hull, The River Derwent and Saving Cornfield Flowers. He was made an OBE for services to the heritage and awarded the National Federation of Anglers’ Gold Medal and the ‘Golden Scale’, the mark of the Golden Scale Club for his contribition to the conservation of rivers. Ian lives in Harleston.
