Digging, Draining, Drenching –

The Story of Peat Exhibition

Thanks to the Broads Authority for funding this new exhibition through their FIPL project.  The Broads were formed through the digging of peat and the land around was drained for agriculture.  But by rewetting and retaining peat in the landscape, it could act as an important store of carbon and help to mitigate climate change.  Find out more from April 2024!

Esox Lucius II Restoration

Many thanks to Lathams for raising money to restore Ken Latham’s fishing boat, Esox Lucius II.  This is in celebration of Lathams’ 60th year and Esox Lucius II will feature in a special display in 2024.  Find out more in the EDP.
