Barton Turf

Details

Hidden away at the end of one of the dykes leading to Barton Broad, not far from the boardwalk out to the broad near the villages of Neatishead and Irstead. 'Turf' reflects the history of peat digging in the Broads. During the 1300s and 1400s Norwich and its cathedral priory used 400,000 turves of peat a year. By the 17th century Norwich was the country's largest provincial city.
