After the launch of the Waveney Museums Trail map, our two museums (Waveney Heritage and Waveney Wireless) are now open on the second and last Sunday of each month but revert back to once a month (the last Sunday) from October.

 

So come and collect your map, get your map stamped and follow on to the next museum.  

Also an ideal way for children to get more involved in history. Open from 10 am - 3pm.

Latest Newsletter (April)

 

  

Well, here we are again at the beginning of another year of events at Waveney Heritage. Our initial Wednesday evening talk by Robin Twigge, our chairman, went with a swing, as always, closely followed on Easter Monday by our first Open Day of the season.  Both museums were open, there was a beautiful display of photographs of Billingford Mill taken by the late Barry Freeman and the Waveney River Trust and Round Tower Churches Trust were on hand to provide information about their organisations.

 

As always the BBQ, run by Graham and Corinne Moore was greatly appreciated, as was the cafe providing drinks and a lovely selection of cakes. Our grounds are now being looked after by Waveney Volunteers for Nature who also ensure that the two Brockdish Commons are managed with  the primary interests of wildlife and nature in mind. We are very happy to be associated with these  organisations, welcoming them into our home, working together to conserve what we have and aiming towards a greater understanding of the importance of looking after our environment, to say nothing of those who live and work in it!

 

Do please have a look at our website to see what further delights we have in store for you this year, starting with our talk by Gordon Lascelles on the evening of Wednesday 17th.  He'll be speaking about Burgh Castle, the Roman fort overlooking the Waveney down on the coast.  It was part of the defences protecting what was then a large estuary, now the Broads, from invasion.  Did you know it existed?  I didn't!  Do come to hear all about it - no need to book - drinks and cakes as always!

STOP PRESS! Do you have time to spare and an interest in the history of the Waveney Valley?  If you have, do think about volunteering, either in the museum or archive or maybe giving a talk? We'd be delighted to welcome you!
