Heritage Open Days 2021 – Life and Work on the Broads: WISEArchive Story Map

Event date: 10th September, 2021 - 19th September, 2021

View ‘Story Map’ on Google Earth here

Exclusive to Heritage Open Days (HODs) 2021, we have created a ‘story map’ using interview recordings by the WISEArchive oral history group, who since 2018, have recorded the accounts and recollections of almost 100 people who have lived and worked in the marshes of Broads over the last century.

The stories are a fascinating insight into the rich history and ongoing changes in the Broads and have been published in the ‘Water, Mills, Marshes: Life and Work on the Broads’ book, available to purchase online now. More about this project can be found here.

The stories have been plotted as pins according to their location onto Google Earth. Explore the map by clicking on the pins and following the accompanying SoundCloud link to listen to their story. Listen either at home or while out exploring the Broads National Park.
