Rolling out the old beer barrels for the dogs
Old beer barrels have been recycled to provide new dog watering stations at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, South Walsham.
Two have been set up so far, near the tearoom and down by the staithe next to Fairhaven’s broad.
Visitor Peter Brough’s dog, Pippa, sampled the new watering station. “It’s the first time we have visited Fairhaven. We are from Brownhills in the West Midlands and have travelled for a short break before our niece, Emma’s graduation day at the UEA.
“We have really enjoyed exploring Fairhaven Garden and think that the beer barrels are a great idea. It means that you can ensure that your dog has easy access to fresh water.”
Dogs on leads are welcome at Fairhaven Garden. There is a dog entry charge (25p) to cover the costs of poop scoops, which are given to every dog owner. Dog bins are sited in the gardens.
Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is at South Walsham, nine miles east of Norwich, signposted off the A47 at the B1140 junction.
