Norfolk's next top pike water..?

Probably not - as in almost certainly not. But I did see fish topping in the Purfleet in King's Lynn yesterday, while I was on a work-related assignment nearby.

Then I remembered a survey after they cleaned all the mud out and blocked it off from the tidal river with a sluice ten years or more back, which found silver bream among the butts and sticklebacks.

Eels used to run up through the sewers under King Street. An old boy who used to take pictures for the papers once famously photographed him babbing down one of the drains for them. So maybe, just maybe...
