See our special 2022 exhibition:

‘From Sails to Blades – How Wind Power Shaped the Broads’

Wind has powered the Broads for centuries.

Windmills, wind pumps, sail boats used by the Romans and Vikings, and specialised Broads craft such as the Keel and Wherries, have all left their mark on the Broads.  And what of the future?  The first electricity generating wind turbines in Norfolk were situated in the Broads landscape.

Find out more in this new exhibition.
