Welcome to Falcon Meadow
The historic 4.2 acre Falcon Meadow lies between the town of Bungay, Suffolk, and the village of Ditchingham, Norfolk, accessed at the Ditchingham end from the junction of Bridge Street and Ditchingham Dam, and from Bungay by bridge from the Staithe. See the Location page.
This beautiful water meadow currently provides the only remaining riverside green area in Bungay with a public right of way. It has one of the oldest public footpaths and is a valued and unique place to go to sit, fish, canoe, wildlife watch and hold riverside events.
It is owned and managed by the Falcon Meadow Community Trust (Registered Charity number 1161688), which aims to develop it as recreational space and to improve its potential as a wildlife habitat.
The Trustees would like to thank the following for their help and assistance in making it all possible:
Rosedale Funeral Home
Richard Cundy’s dairy farm, who maintained the meadow through the transition
Reedham Duck Race Committee
