Canal Trust Ebridge Mill Open Day
September 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - September 10, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
North Walsham and Dilham Canal Trust HODS (Heritage Open Days)
Ebridge Mill, Happisburgh Road, White Horse Common, North Walsham, Norfolk, NR28 9NG
In the North East of Norfolk visit Norfolk’s ONLY locked sailing canal. Walk along the banks with over 2.5 miles of canal to explore inspecting the restoration of Norfolk’s unique industrial archaeological site, or bring your canoe and explore by water. The Trust will be making trips on one of their work boats available to anyone who would like to travel on the canal from Ebridge to Spa Common – and back again, of course!
The Trust’s Wildlife Officer will have many photographs and will talk to you about how the restoration so far has had a major and undeniable beneficial effect on the canal’s Flora and Fauna. We’ll have an Information and Membership Tent along with refreshments which will include home made cakes; we’ll host a tombola and brick-a-brac stall which will help to raise funds for much needed new equipment.
Come along to view ‘past and present’ photographs, touch exhibits of treasure’s found in and around the canal. Chat with Trust Officers about your memories, and if you have photos of the canal bring these along too.
And finally enjoy a chat with the many volunteers who are working hard to bring this piece of our industrial heritage back to life again and make it a great day out on and beside ‘Norfolk’s only Locked Sailing Canal’.
