Our aim is to keep the reserve as when humankind lived and worked in the area as an integral part of nature. This small piece of nature in the heart of town is maintained and supported by local volunteers for the good of all who wish to escape or have an interest in the ecological and social history of Oulton Broad.

Why not join us and experience the great outdoors, make new friends, get your hands dirty and play your part in saving the countryside for future generations.

Meadow is undertaken almost entirely by volunteers. The team is small and is in real need of new people to help. If you can give some time, even if it’s only occasionally please contact Peter – 01502 514157   Margaret 01502 584261.
