The Forestry Commission, who manage Thetford Forest, have been awarded £610,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a project to allow people to explore our areas past.
The scheme, titled ‘Trailing the hidden heritage of High Lodge’, will include the construction of a 4.2km trail for people to find out about how features of the area have been created – from gun flint mining to the creation of the forest itself.
A series of free heritage workshops in Thetford Forest at High Lodge have been organised and include activities for schools and families to learn new heritage skills. These workshops include:
- How rabbits were farmed in the area
- Burial mounds and historic banks
- Exploring historic documents
