North Walsham Conservation Group

You are here

Our brand new North Walsham area project - made possible by National Lottery players through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund - has now started, with tasks on Wednesday afternoons.  If you join the group, you will find that a friendly experienced leader provides all the training you need, you can work at your own pace, you can have a chat and a laugh while you work - and there is even a tea-break halfway through.

There is a range of different activities, so you can start gently and build up to more challenging tasks if you wish. Anyone over 18 years old can join, whatever your capabilities. You do NOT have to be physically fit to join us! The activities are suitable for people with a range of disabilities and/or learning difficulties.

To get the programme of upcoming tasks, including meeting points and times for free minibus pick-up from the centre of North Walsham, please contact Project Officer Mark Webster on 07843 069 567 or email:  Or see the bottom of this page...

We also have Heritage Open Days at two of our sites coming up - please follow these links for details of the rare chance to see inside Felmingham station, and our exciting Open Day at Honing station.

What you need

Old outdoor working clothes suitable for the weather, and reasonably sturdy shoes or boots if you have them. We provide all the necessary tools and personal protective equipment. Either have lunch first or bring your own. Tea/coffee is provided.

You do not have to book, just turn up, although if you are coming for the first time please feel free to ring the group to confirm where your nearest collection point is. If you want to bring several people please let the group know beforehand.

Task days

Wedneday afternoons - work will include helping to restore the old station at Briggate, as well as improving butterfly habitats at Felmingham and Knapton, and some other interesting sites too. 

Latest news

We are putting all our efforts into restoring the old stations at Honing and Felmingham right now, before turning to Pigneys Wood for meadow management and coppicing, back to Knapton to continue looking after the butterfly reserve, and there's so much going else on too!  These activities are open to everyone - see below...
