Peter Scott Walk

The walk along the coastline of the Wash stretches from the mouth of the River Nene to the ferry crossing at King's Lynn. It follows the top of the outer sea defence bank along the coast, offering views of the Wash and north Fens, with their wide open landscapes and abundant birdlife. Naturalist and a painter Sir Peter Scott lived at the lighthouse on the East bank of the River Nene at Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire.
