TF6719 : Bawsey Country Park

near to Bawsey, Norfolk, Great Britain

Bawsey Country Park
Bawsey Country Park
One of several lakes in the area created from disused sand pits/quarries. The local Kings Lynn golf club was nearby also, until moving around a similar time to the cessation of sand extraction. Whilst fishing & sailing used to take place on the lakes, nowadays, the water in the lakes is too acidic from the sand extraction processes to support aquatic life and the owner of the lake where sailing used to take place no longer actively supports efforts to maintain the sport and the surrounding trees result in unfavourable wind conditions for any reliable sailing. Some canoeing is undertaken by the local college sports department.
