THE THREE RIVERS WAY
The Three Rivers Way is an exciting new nine mile cycling and walking route that aims to link the four riverside villages of Hoveton, Horning, Ludham and Potter Heigham, to existing lanes, bridleways and footpaths and avoiding the need for travel on the A1062.
Norfolk County Council is delighted to announce that the first of the three phases of the route between Hoveton and Horning is now completed, and there was an official opening bicycle ride and ceremony Friday 22 July.
This event gave people the opportunity to see the first phase of the route for themselves as well as network with others to see how it might benefit any organisation, local area or business.
The new route was officially opened with a short speech at 9.45am by County Councillor, Hilary Cox, followed by a ceremonial cutting of a bike chain, and then a guided cycle ride (there and back) by Skyride leader Peter Cornwell. There was also the option to walk the route which is approximately a five mile round trip.
The BroadsByCycle scheme offered their brand new hire bikes for free. NCC also had two electric bikes available.
You can find out more about the route on the website: www.threeriversway.org.uk

Hoveton Great Broad Project:
This project, which began in 2015, is funded by the EU and the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is mainly focused on the restoration of Hoveton Great Broad but also on creating a new boat trail through Hoveton’s marshes. The restoration work involves dredging the shallower points of the Broad and using the sediment to create new areas of land on the Broad. The same process was used on Salhouse Broad and worked well. For further details click here or view the Parish Council Minutes, 7 March 2018 (item 5).
