Where does the name Gur Beck come from

Home / Blog / Where does the name Gur Beck come from

Gur Beck is a minor watercourse which rises in the north of the English county of Norfolk.[1] It is a tributary of the Scarrow Beck. Its spring is a little east of the North Norfolk village of West Beckham. It eventually merges after 4.2 miles (6.8 km) with the Scarrow Beck at Sustead. There once was a watermill on the beck. This could be found in the village of Gresham, but is no longer in working order.

Although only a little over 4 miles long from where it rises to where it joins Scarrow Beck Gur Beck has a history of being an area for food production.  In the past Gur Beck has powered a watermill in Gresham and then fed the water meadows in Sustead which were a way of keeping frost from the grasses to extend the grazing season.  These meadows are still used for grazing today (no longer water meadows) but unfortunately the watermill has long gone.  The ingredients for producing great food have always been grown and harvested along this watercourse so it seemed appropriate that our philosophy of local food produced locally and sold locally along with its close proximity to us made Gur Beck Country Foods a suitable name.

Production of great food still goes on in this area and along with our Scotch eggs and other homemade produce we are proud to have Juberwacky mustards produced by our neighbour and part of our stock. These go particularly well with our Scotch eggs and meat terrines.

Today the watercourse is also a great area for wildlife and recently the Felbeck Trust has done some great conservation work on the common which is right next to where we produce. This has improved both wildlife habitat and access to the public to enable everyone to enjoy this natural resource why not pop over to their website and see the work they do.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: https://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( httpss://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
