Broads research since Lambert & Jennings 14th August 2021

Event date: 14th August, 2021

This day school will be looking at some of the historical research undertaken on the Broads since the publication of Lambert & Jennings’ canonical work ‘The Making of the Broads’ in 1960. It will explore the evolution of the Broads and the insights afforded by the application of geospatial technology (GIS), consider the impact of 18th and 19th century turf extraction, and examine how the Broads landscape was exploited for fuel.

The morning session will consist of presentations by Charlotte Jarvis and Philippa Parker, PhD researchers from the School of History at the University of East Anglia. For the afternoon session we will head out for a guided walk around Upton Fen and Marshes.

If attending the full day the event will run from 10:00 to 16:00 so please bring with you a packed lunch. Tickets cost £6 per person and will be pre-book only. Please complete the short form at to apply for tickets or email for additional information.
