Water, Mills & Marshes
An opportunity for community
archaeology in this area is now being offered
under the Heritage Lottery funded “Water, Mills
& Marshes” project.
This is a Broads-wide project
covering environmental issues as well as
historical research. The “Broads Hidden Heritage”
part of the scheme is offering free training in
archaeological and historical research on various
topics, beginning with “Churches of the Broads”,
“Aerial Photography”, “Understanding Maps” and
Being oversubscribed, they will
hopefully all be repeated next year and others
will come on stream.
Two of our
members have attended the Churches of the Broads
event and found it of great interest, including
lectures with plenty of time to ask those
questions you’ve always wanted to ask then a
brief tour of three churches to look at the
detail of the buildings.
