The source of the River Waveney
The source of the River Waveney
The River Waveney forms part of the boundary between Suffolk and Norfolk. It rises here at Redgrave and Lopham Fen and flows in an easterly direction skirting the towns of Diss, Bungay and Beccles. There is a weir at Billingford and shortly after, the River Dove, flowing northwards from Eye, joins the Waveney on the southern bank. The Waveney passes round Bungay and on to Beccles. Then, having skirted past Oulton Broad it passes through Somerleyton and Haddiscoe before merging with the Yare in Breydon Water before discharging into the North Sea having travelled about 59 miles. The "ey" part of the name means "river" thus the name is tautological.
River Waveney

The River Waveney forms the boundary between Suffolk and Norfolk. It rises at Redgrave Fen and flows in an easterly direction though the towns of Diss, Bungay (the head of navigation) and Beccles. There is a weir at Billingford, shortly after the River Dove, flowing northwards from Eye, joins the Waveney on the southern bank. The Waveney passes round Bungay and on to Beccles. Having skirted past Oulton Broad it passes through Somerleyton and Hadiscoe before merging with the Yare in Breydon Water.

Suffolk Rivers

Suffolk has twenty rivers worthy of the name. The River Waveney and the River Little Ouse form the boundary between Norfolk and Suffolk. The River Stour does the same for Suffolk and Essex. The Alde, the Blyth, the Deben are the main rivers and the others are tributaries or affluents of these.
Among the names of these are the Box, the Lark, the Dove and the Rat.
