King’s Lynn is blessed with more than its fair share of waterways.
Land drains like this one, used to drain the water from the marsh land and make it habitable, are a common site, but their utilitarian nature has been smoothed over time.
Grass and wild flowers abound along the bank, and on sunny days like this one, with the water reflecting the blue sky, it seems really like a natural stream, rather than a man-made artifact.
Here it seems so much like a country village that it is difficult to imagine that the busy market area is only a few streets away, with all the bustle and noise of that center of commerce.
It is peaceful and restful, an idyllic escape into the countryside, right here in the center of town.
