Event description
Enjoy a journey through the Broads to discover the changes that have taken place over the years and consider what the future might hold

About this event

Discover how the Broads was once a wide estuary that became blocked and led to drained grazing marshes and peat forming; how the peat led to the fens and the cutting of the peat led to the lakes; how the rivers that now run through them were used for trade and produce, leading to the modern boating and tourism industry we know today.   

Simon Hooton will highlight the present-day broads as we know them – where they are and what we can hope to see along the broads, before taking a peek into the future. This future glimpse will look at how the Broads are changing; the actions we needed to take to tackle a changing climate and biodiversity loss; and how management of the broads can make a difference.

Many of the habitats and management Simon will cover, along with the future challenges for this dynamic landscape, can be seen at Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Carlton Marshes reserve, which acts as the Suffolk gateway to the Broads.
