    Norfolk Wildlife Trust...

    by arturowan Updated Dec 19, 2014

    The Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest such member of the Wildlife Trusts partnership in the British Isles, & was formed in 1926
    Its HQ is @ Bewick House, in Norwich...
    The trust is custodian to more tahn 50 reserves, comprising habitats of woodland, heath, & Broadland, which is a feature unique in Britain to Norfolk...
    NWT vehicles are unmistakable because they are painted fire-engine red, something I have never seen before for an ecological organisation...

    NWT reserves in Breckland, for which I have written reviews;
    East Wretham Heath
    Thompson Common
    Weeting Heath

    Nature Trail

    by kevin36 Updated Mar 4, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nature trail is open all year. At the edge of the Broad the Broadland Conservation Centre is moored a unique floating visitor center with exhibitions, information and super views from its gallery.

    The reserve can be visited by following signs from Malthouse staithe. from the entrance a 450 metre nature trail meanders through oak woodland, swamp Carr and open fen to the edge of the Broad and offers a chance to glimpse some of the wildlife that this area is famous for.

    Yelverton Church

    by mtstranscribe Updated Feb 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not sure anyone would want to particularly visit this church except someone interested in their family history, It is a quaint old church but nothing that you can't see all over England. However, it was special to me as several family members from the past 2 centuries are buried here and the baptismal book as their names written in it. The church is on the outer limits of Norwich near Porlingland.

    Forgotten Norfolk

    by tissie Written Sep 20, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Norfolk coast south of Cromer and north of the Broads is a pretty much forgotten part of the county. There are some wonderful beaches and villages, including my favourite, Mundesley (pronounced Munsey) and some great places to explore and discover for yourself, away from the crowds who frequent the more popular places.

    East Runton

    by mazzap Updated May 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A steep ramp leads through East Runton Gap to the beach. Beautiful wide expanses of sand make this a safe favourite for swimming.

    There is a large grassed 'pay & display' car park at the top of the cliff with easy access down the slope to the beach. Toilets can be found here too & shops selling beach goods & food are very close by.

    A few crab boats are still launched from here and hauled back from the beach by tractor.

    The Muckleburgh Collection

    by Tom_Fields Written Nov 22, 2005

    The Muckleburgh Collection is a formidable group of tanks, armored personnel carriers, armored cars, artillery pieces, anti-aircraft guns, small arms, and other equipment. It even rivals the Imperial War Museum in London.

    It's located on the Norfolk coast, past King's Lynn and Hunstanton, on the way to Cromer. Yes, it is definitely off the beaten track. But if you have time to go out that way, and have an interest in things military, it's well worth your while.

    Some of the old tanks and other vehicles still run. When I visited, an old self-propelled gun called the Abbott, dating back to World War II, was going through its paces on the range. Public demonstrations are given often during summer. Call or check the web site for times.

    Don' be afraid to explore

    by hubba78 Written Jan 10, 2005

    Castle ruins & other tourist attractions are well signposted from major roads but access is often down tiny lanes. On many occassions I have started to wonder if I had lost my way. But the signs keep appearing as necessary. You may need a map when it comes time to get get back on to the mjor road! Here's a photo of a fantastic castle, situated in the middle of a cattle farm!

  • Don't drive through Norfolk too fast!

    Discover Norfolk by taking the quiet country roads, and watch out for wildlife. -Especially pheasants. They tend to wander on the roads, hate to fly off and have no sense of traffic.

    Springtime - a local view.
