A site of huge historical interest, Whitlingham Country
Park is also an important wildlife reserve - home to many butterflies,
birds and dragonflies.
Combining these elements of the park, Paul Bolton of
the Whitlingham Charitable Trust and Tony Polack from the Norfolk Wildlife
Trust are your video guides in a tour of the country park.

clips from the various stages on our Whitlingham Park walks through time.
The orange route is a history tour of the park and includes
a stunning Victorian lime avenue, the discovery of Neolithic flint-knapping
and Palaeolithic remains in Whitlingham Wood, along with details of the
changing landscape through extensive chalk mining.
The yellow route takes you on a nature tour around the
Great Broad. Ideal for wheelchair and buggy accessibility, this route
explores the many wildflowers, indigenous flora, insect life and birds
you can discover on a walk around the water's edge.
The park, once part of the Crown Point Estate owned by
the famous Colman family, is now managed by the Whitlingham Charitable
Trust with assistance from the Broads Authority.
