Blickling Estate and the Egyptian Heritage Rescue Foundation
Managing heavy rainfall
Blickling Estate in Norfolk has been twinned with Bayt-al-Razzaz, a 15th-century palace in historic Cairo in Egypt.
The Egyptian Heritage Rescue Foundation (EHRF) has been working at the palace to protect it from intense rainfall, which caused a neighbouring building to collapse. Similarly, our team at Blickling Estate has been finding new ways to protect the Jacobean mansion from flooding and structural damage.
The teams will be working together to engage audiences in conversations about climate change and raise awareness of the impact it can have. EHRF is creating an illustrated book and graphic novel about Bayt-al-Razzaz to use in workshops for young people. The team at Blickling will use ideas from these sessions to inform their own climate engagement programme.
