Museum of the Broads

Our first project was formally opened at the Museum of the Broads, Stalham Staithe, Stalham where we promoted the idea and found the funding for demonstration audio guides to help the Museum identify and explain its exhibits to visitors.

The work involved liaison with the former Norwich Art School and the Time & Tide Museum at Great Yarmouth and our team was headed by Dr. Douglas Munro who has experience of this type of work with international organisations.

Geldeston Shipmeadow Locks

The Trust was pleased to help with this project which was to interpret the historic Locks site by helping to mount an exhibition in the Beccles Museum, producing a information board on site, enabling a description podcast system for use in school visits and the production of a video illustrating the bygone life and times of this iconic site.

The locks were closed to river traffic in 1934 which marked the end to 150 years of wherry navigation in the upper Waveney as far as Bungay. The site is splendidly isolated, close to the Locks Inn, and an important part of the Broads heritage.

This was achieved with the help of the Geoffrey Watling Charity ( and the work was supervised by Colin Hart of the Broads Authority

The project was completed with all objectives met and was opened on May 24 2011

If you’re planning a visit to Geldeston why not download this podcast before you go and let it guide you on a short walk around the historic lock. The podcast was produced as part of a joint project between the Broads Authority and the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Charitable Trust with funding from the Geoffrey Watling Charity.
