View across The Island
The Island is a roughly triangular-shaped area consisting of marsh pastures, surrounded by the River Waveney in the east and the River Yare in the west, with the New Cut connecting both rivers and forming the border in the southwest by cutting diagonally across it from Reedham in the NW to St Olaves in the SE. The Norwich to Lowestoft railway line runs along the cut on the other side, forming the northern boundary of the Norton, Thurlton and Thorpe Marshes. This land forms part of Pettingell's Level.

The pink-flowering plants seen in the foreground are Great willowherb. Great willowherb (Epilobium hirsutum) is the tallest and largest flowered willowherb found in the UK. It flourishes in damp ground, such as wet grasslands, ditches, riversides and woodland clearings where it can often be seen forming large colonies. It is said to be the 'St. Anthony's Herb' of antiquity.
