Cattawade Picnic Site (River Stour Trust)

General Details

Cattawade Picnic Site is in the heart of Constable country, on the edge of the Stour estuary. It is locally renowned for its excellent location for bird watching. On a good day you can see redshank, lapwings and oystercatchers breeding on the pastures of Cattawade Marshes.

At the site, there is an opportunity to fish or to canoe, using the purpose built platforms. From the carpark, you can walk along the Stour valley path, which follows the river between Brantham and Newmarket.

In January 2012, the River Stour Trust entered into negotiations with Suffolk County Council with a view to taking on the freehold of the  and to take over responsibility for its upkeep. In May 2012, the Trust’s acquisition of the site was completed and we would welcome voluntary assistance to maintain this vital river access point at the end of the Navigation.
