Pickerel Project – an environmental group seeking to bring about improvements to the Stowmarket river corridors for the benefit of all.


We wish to see greater public access to our rivers and an enhancement to the natural landscape where wildlife can flourish and people can spend leisure time.

The Project helps to maintain and promote the 17-mile Gipping Valley River Path, promotes community projects and runs active volunteer groups, which meet regularly to carry out a range of practical nature conservation and countryside management tasks.

We hold regular meetings at Milton House, Milton Road South and on the first Sunday of each month we get together to clean up stretches of the River Gipping. We are always on the look-out for new people, either to join our Committee or to help us with the clear-ups. If you have a few hours to spare, we would love to hear from you, for further details phone Michael Marriott on 01449 612060 or send an email to pickerelproject@stowmarket.org.
