Conservation projects at Blickling Estate

Conservation is an ongoing concern within the house and gardens and out to the parkland and wider estate. With your ongoing support we're able to continue our conservation work because every time you visit, you're helping us to do a little bit more, so thank you.

Conservation in the house

Little river of big importance

The River Bure runs through the Blickling and Felbrigg Estates, however our work doesn't stop there. It's vital we work with our partners on a landscape scale to ensure we care for this rare habitat. With you support we can create an environment that's rich in wildlife and accessible for you to enjoy for years to come.

Walled garden conservation 

Since 2015 we've been restoring the walled garden as part of a five year project.  The transformation within that time has been incredible, so it's worth a visit if you haven't been for some time.

The gardeners are now supplying The Stables cafes with produce to use in our dishes.  If you fancy taking some produce to enjoy at home, you'll find our fruit and vegetable stall in the walled garden, so help yourself to produce, for a small donation.

Thanks to your support the garden has been restored to its former glory
