Ross' wildlife boat trips from Horsey are a very enjoyable and informative way to spend an hour. You will see some rare species, including in high summer, the beautiful swallowtail butterfly.
The National Trust is displaying some curious items in cabinets at its Felbrigg Hall property near Cromer.
National Trust wins award for Blickling Estate
This is a pleasant walk from Morston to Weybourne on the coastal path. The going is easy but walking on the shingle section can be tiring. If the tide is out, go down the beach and walk on the hard sand.
In the early hours of the morning on 16 October 1987, hurricane force winds devastated homes, woods and gardens in the UK.
I have received a press release from the National Trust about an exciting new trail to be opened this Friday (9th June) at Blickling Hall.
In May, something dark and mysterious is going to happen at the National Trust's Felbrigg Hall near Cromer in North Norfolk. As part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, the landscape theatre company, WildWorks, will be presenting Wolf's Child. This production is described as a "grown-up fairy tale." Tickets are available now from the Festival website.
Doubts are arising that damage to some of North Norfolk's sea defences caused by the tidal surge in December will be repaired. The Environment Agency are seriously considering allowing the sea back in to reclaim land at Cley and Salthouse. If that does prove to be the case the economic impact on the area could be considerable. Thousands of birdwatchers travel to the reserves at Cley and Blakeney Point every year injecting a great deal of money into the local economy. If the nature of the reserves is changed by allowing the sea back in the variety of bird life will also change and the attraction of this unique part of Norfolk for keen 'birders' could wane.

Spend a day at the National Trust's Felbrigg Park in North Norfolk. It makes for a very rewarding day out. The walled garden is exceptional and there is very good walking in the Great Wood and by the lake. All the usual National Trust facilities are available at Felbrigg Hall.
