The Twilight Broads

Hickling Broad was created in medieval times by locals digging out peat for winter fuel; today it is a unique landscape of Norfolk reed and Woodland Carr. Throughout autumn and winter, as sunset approaches, it is a secret place to watch nature’s clock unfold. Follow the path to Stubbs Mill where a Norfolk Wildlife Trust viewing platform will help to keep your feet dry while offering views over fields of waving reed, glistening water and lost long Broads buildings. Over the years barn owls have found a safe place to roost and breed in the broken timbers of Brograve drainage mill, while short eared owls, with their piercing yellow eyes may be seen quartering the banks.

Sheringham / Cromer cliff-top path

On a clear winter day a walk along the cliff tops offers an impressive 360⁰ view over both land and sea. Keep an eye out for kestrels on the wing and listen for cormorants as you follow the rolling coast path, meandering over close-cropped grass and scrubby thickets. During autumn these areas offer a prime location for foraging Sea Buckthorn. Bristly bushes with inch long spines may appear intimidating at first, but the tightly clustered berries, amber in colour, offer up a bounty to those who are willing to commit a bit of time and effort. Take along a sturdy tub and a pair of gloves and your cliff top walk will provide an abundance of culinary potential.

Sunrise to Moonrise in Great Yarmouth

If you wrap up warm and embrace the fresh North Sea breeze, the rolling sands of North Denes offer up its own barren beauty to brighten the shorter days of winter. This quiet spot, washed in salty mists and dotted with tussocks of marram grass, is a favourite with dog walkers and adventurers who want to get the most out of their day. Be the first to greet the morning by heading down to the beach before sunlight. If you want to take breakfast with you, a flask of coffee and Pastéis de Nata from one of Great Yarmouth’s Portuguese stores makes a fine treat. Nestle down in the shelter of the dunes and watch the sun as it rises up and over the sea, full of promise for the…

Twilight Time in Buckenham Marshes

The area around Buckenham Marshes offers a unique opportunity to see the special changes which take place within the natural landscape during that liminal time-zone between dusk and nightfall. Make your hideaway in the grassy verges, on the seats by the river edge or inside the cosy bird hide and settle down for the evening’s entertainment. A hot flask and blanket might help. As the sun slowly sinks behind the trees look out for a flurry of activity as the wintering waterfowl busily finish the business of the day and prepare for the long night ahead. Meanwhile, look out over the marshes and you’ll see rabbits emerge from their warrens full of energy, ready to begin their day. In the distance look closely and you could see deer stepping out…

Martin Jones from Norwich is a keen amateur photographer who over the past few months has been taking his camera out with him when going for a walk along a small part of the River Wensum in Norwich. We are so glad that Martin took the time to share these wonderful selection of photographs with us which we are sure you will enjoy and just demonstrates what we can all see if we take a moment to just stop and observe the environment around us . We are, of course, also very lucky to either live in or be able to visit the fine City of Norwich which the Sunday Times recently named Norwich one of the best places to live in 2021.

Guided Heritage walks got underway from July 1 through to the end of October, with support from the Go Trade project. Great Yarmouth Borough Council runs a programme of fascinating Guided Heritage Walks every year, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to delve into the borough’s rich history. A full schedule of guided walks was planned for 2020, which unfortunately had to be suspended owing to the pandemic and rules regarding travel and social distancing. Due to the restrictions put in place by the Government, the Guided Heritage Walks were offered online as a virtual experience. Now back and better than ever, the walks are each led by an official Great Yarmouth Heritage Guide and boast to be one of the most interesting ways to explore the resort. The carefully…
