Great Ouse Boating Association, IWA’s Great Ouse Branch (formerly Cambridge Branch), East Anglian Waterways Association have all long-promoted the possibilities of extending navigation of the Little Ouse from its current head of navigation at Brandon town centre to Thetford (10.5 miles) and the Little Ouse Group was formed in 2007.  A study by consultants in 2003, co-ordinated by EA, into the feasibility of restoring the river along this route has indicated that four new locks would be needed.
