Whitlingham Country Park, with its Great and Little Broad, evolved from gravel extractions that took place on the Crown Point Estate during the construction of the A47 in the 1980s.  It is now managed by the Whitlingham Charitable Trust on a long lease to provide an amenity resource for quiet enjoyment on the edge of Norwich.

Quiet Enjoyment

Set on the edge of the City of Norwich the Estate provides a variety of aspects from which the general public can benefit.    Under long term leases, to the Whitlingham Charitable Trust , the Whitlingham Country Park, broads and woods around the Whitlingham Great Broad and Little Broad allow access to those wishing to enjoy outside leisure activities.  The Colman family retain involvement in the Whitlingham Charitable Trust through their Board membership, which meets on a regular basis to oversee the running and future direction of this valuable amentity land.   The day-to-day running of the park is managed by the Broads Authority.

Since 2005 the Whitlingham Adventure Centre, located on the edge of Great Broad, and managed by Norfolk County Council, provides an outdoor water sports complex delivering a range of activities on Norwich's doorstep.  Other facilities at Whitlingham Country Park include a visitor centre and cafe, both located at the Flint Barn.

Neighbouring Whitlingham Country Park are a varied selection of partners and tenants who provide a range of outdoor activities - from canoe and rowing clubs, to the nationally renowned Norwich Snow Sports Club.  For visitors from outside the region a new addition to the area is the Whitlingham Broad Campsite - where you can book pitches and, for those looking for alternative weatherproof accommodation, shepherd huts or yurts!

The Colman family wish to ensure  that this special area, which is located so close to the centre of Norwich, remains a place of quiet enjoyment for all who seek it.
