Joining forces for River Wensum improvements

A new partnership has been set up to make the most of a natural asset at the heart of the city – the River Wensum.

Norwich City Council is leading the development of a joint strategy for the river, working in partnership with the Broads Authority, Norfolk County Council and the River Wensum Parkway Partnership.

The strategy will aim to manage the River Wensum and surrounding area for the benefit of the city and its residents, while also increasing access to, and use of, the river itself.

Norfolk's Industrial Heritage

It comes as a surprise to many visitors – and not a few Norfolk residents – to discover that a green and rural coastal county was once the heartland of key British industries.

Arguably the most important and profitable trade predated the Industrial Revolution. Between the 11th and 16th centuries many Flemish weavers and textile workers crossed the North Sea from Flanders to establish themselves in Norfolk. The export of high-quality East Anglian wool had slowed, so many weavers decided to shift their business to the source.
