Shotley peninsula

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Shotley peninsula is a rural area east of the A137 Ipswich-Colchester road located between the rivers Stour and Orwell in Suffolk, England. The peninsula is named after the settlements of Shotley and Shotley Gate which are situated near its south-eastern tip. Other villages on the peninsula include Chelmondiston, Erwarton (Arwarton), Freston, Harkstead, Holbrook, Stutton, Tattingstone, Wherstead and Woolverstone.

Shotley peninsula

The rivers Stour and Orwell meet at Shotley Gate and merge to join with the North Sea. The Stour and Orwell is a designated Special Protection Area,a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Ramsar site for wetland habitats.

The landscape is predominantly ancient estate farmlands, with salt marshes and intertidal mudflats. The mudflats are an important winter feeding area for estuary birds, wild fowl and waders. The wetlands and estuaries are home to otters and water voles. There are significant areas of woodland, parkland and hedgerows with dormouse and stag beetle populations.
