Norfolk Wildlife Trust – land deal to go ahead

It looks as though the Norfolk Wildlife Trust will be able to acquire an extra 143 acres of land between Salthouse and Cley comprised of grazing marshes, ponds and reedbeds.

The land came onto the market recently and the NWT has found finance to make the purchase with the help of a charitable foundation.

The Trust will need to raise £1m pounds in 22 months to finalise the purchase. A campaign to raise the money will start in due course.

The land is situated between the NWT Cley Reserve and Gramborough Hill, which is owned by the National Trust. The purchase will link the piece of coast between the marshes at Salthouse and Blakeney Point, forming an 8km section that will be in the care of the two organisations. This is great news for nature conservation in North Norfolk.
