Welcome to Bury Water Meadows Group

Our main aims are to conserve and improve the Rivers Lark and Linnet in Bury St Edmunds and adjacent areas for the benefit of the public and wildlife.  

The Group comprises concerned residents, local associations and groups, and members of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust.

The Rivers Lark and Linnet (both rare chalk streams), and the land around them, have been essential parts of Bury St Edmunds for many centuries. These precious green spaces and rural landscapes are very important in contributing to the town’s historic setting and identity. To retain the character of the town, and preserve its heritage, they should be considered as key elements of the town for future generations.

Bury Water Meadows Group is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registered with the Charity Commission, number 1185321)

We have 230 members, around 70 of whom join our volunteer work parties that take place 3 times a month on average.
