I recently visited the soon to open NWT Sweet Briar Marshes in Norwich.
Situated close to the city centre of Norwich, these 90 acres of fen, rough meadow, grazing marsh, old hedgerows, and young woodland are full of incredible wildlife.
The site includes a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a wide range of biodiversity which will be available for the public to explore soon.
The land was in danger of being lost to developers – but thanks to the generosity of Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s public fundraising appeal and Aviva, Norfolk Wildlife Trust were able to take the land into their ownership.
Norfolk Wildlife Trust are working closely with local people, groups, and schools to encourage them to share their ideas about what they want to see on NWT Sweet Briar Marshes at a series of events and workshops.
