Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest Wildlife Trust in the country. The purchase of 400 acres of marsh at Cley on the north Norfolk coast in 1926 to be held ‘in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary’ provided a blueprint for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK.
About the scheme
The Broads Landscape Partnership Scheme: Water, Mills and Marshes is a £4.5 million group of 38 projects to engage people with the built and natural landscapes of the Broads National Park. Thanks to a generous grant of £2.4 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, as well as contributions from our partners and other charitable trusts, the scheme began its 5 year delivery phase in January 2018 and is expected to finish in December 2022.Map of the Scheme Area
