This trail launches from Buxton (just above Coltishall) and takes in an upper section of the River Bure, one of the quietest and most beautiful stretches of river in the county.
As the river meanders gently through Norfolk farmland you will pass by Buxton Church and Oxnead Hall before arriving at Oxnead Mill Pool. This stretch of the river is exceptional for wildlife spotting with regular sightings of Kingfishers, Herons and even Otters.
This return trip takes approximately 1½ hours each way. The turning point is the very beautiful Mill Pool at Oxnead where most people stop for a picnic and/or a swim. Regardless of your launch time we allow 4-5 hours for your overall trip.
Please Note - This trail involve a short, half mile, walk between the car park and the launch site.
