Roydon Fen

UK»England»Norfolk»Roydon Fen

Roydon Fen: This valley fen is one of the few remaining quality examples of this habitat in the Waveney Valley. Many of the valley fens have been lost over the years through water abstraction and lack of management. They all rely on a pure supply of spring water from the underlying chalk rock, which has given them their unique characteristic vegetation and associated animal communities.

From a viewpoint in the middle of the fen, you may be able to see some of the ancient peat diggings which give the surface of the fen a very irregular pattern. These features have added further variety to the fen, and have created variations in soil depth and hydrology, encouraging a wider variety of plants and animals as a result
