Piper's Vale

Piper's Vale is one of the many parks in Ipswich. It is a local nature reserve on the bank of the River Orwell. Its diverse habitats include reedbeds, scrub, alder carr and heath. Over 100 different birds have been recorded in the reserve. Today we are hoping to find a few butterflies as well as view the Orwell Bridge from beneath.

The building of the Orwell Bridge was started in October 1979 and finished in December 1982.
