This time four years ago, Train Wood was up for sale by Norfolk County Council – on an auction list – and its future looked bleak.
But a hard fought campaign and the determination of the many who love Norwich’s wonderful secret riverbank woodland – and the fantastic Marriott’s Way – saved it for the public. Now it looks set to have its most exciting event ever in May.
Railway heritage and natural history, as well as refreshments, activities for children and more are going to be on offer. With the help of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the event will reveal railway history and record the many species on site. All sorts of experts will be coming along and the site will finally be officially recorded as the precious place that it is. Come along, and bring your friends. If you would like to be involved in helping on the day, please get in touch! Let’s celebrate, and make sure together that it will always be a people’s wood.
