Tidal Lands – exhibition at Blakeney village hall

In August 1912 the banker and keen entomologist Charles Rothschild launched a public appeal and raised funds to purchase Blakeney Point for the sum of £695.  It was then gifted to the National Trust that has looked after the Point ever since.

To celebrate the centenary the National Trust are involved in a number of events throughout the year. One of these is The Tidal Lands exhibition organised by the members of the Blakeney Historical Society and the National Trust.

One of the members of the Society, Mrs Sara Dobson said: “We aim to give visitors and local people an insight into the history of this fascinating coastal village, its once important part in sea-borne trade and the lives of its people.”

The exhibition is in Blakeney village hall from Saturday the 18th August to Tuesday August the 21st.  Entrance is free and admission is from 10.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
