Call for Land by Mid Suffolk District Council

Mid Suffolk are looking for land which could be planted on or improved for nature.

They need landowners – farmers, parish or town councils, businesses, or individuals, who want to do something with their land to benefit the natural environment and the wildlife this supports. 

Advice, support and often the materials and resources needed to make this happen are available.

You don’t need a clear plan at this stage, just an interest in doing something is enough.  MSDC will work with you to form a plan if needed, or help turn an existing plan into reality. 

If you are interested please get in touch with Richard Parmee | Biodiversity Project Manager | 01449 724 762 | 07927 589 614

The group still meets regularly, and have produced a Brief History of Walsham, and comprehensive Reviews on particular aspects of Walsham’s historical record which have been published at the rate of three or four a year since 1997, and a selection of books and compact discs.

Cover of the book The Black Death: An intimate History by John Hatcher

Walsham le Willows has a rich history that is based on the survival of exceptionally good 14th-century manorial records which led to Walsham being chosen as the setting for the fictionalised history The Black Death: An Intimate History, by John Hatcher set in the years following the summer of 1348 as the Black Death ravaged European society.  John Hatcher used the excellent manorial records to ‘fill in the gaps’ for his story.
