More in Commons
Monday 17 May to Sunday 31 October 2021
In celebration of Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s 95th anniversary, we have spent the last year working with Norfolk Wildlife Trust and local community groups to put together a temporary exhibit that delves into the history and wildlife of Norfolk’s common land.
The exhibit is a mix of interpretation panels, historical exhibits, film footage, and a sculpted common, complete with wildlife, created by the local community during lockdown.
It explores local Hoe and Litcham Commons and the importance of commons to Gypsy, Romany and Traveller communities today and in the past.
The exhibition is also supported by an event programme that includes Demonstration Sunday, where you can learn more about some of the activities that may have happened on the common, such as scything, wood turning and cooking using foraged foods, as well as children's activities during the summer holiday, inspired by this year's exhibition.
