Two Walks with a difference at former Norfolk airbase

Want to get fit while learning about the  history of the former  Coltishall Air Base?

At 10.30am on Thursday 28 May and Tuesday 25 August, members of the public have the chance to walk around the perimeter of the former airbase (now Scottow Enterprise Park) while at the same time see and hear about the rich heritage the site has to offer.

The ‘Informative Walk and Talk’ later this month will be 3.1miles, and the event in August will be slightly longer at 4.2 miles.   Both events provide accessibility for people in wheelchairs and motorised buggies as the routes will be on tarmac.

Both walks are being organised by David Gurney, Historic Environment Manager at Norfolk County Council with members of the Spirit of Coltishall Association (SoCA) as expert guides, providing an opportunity for people to see many of the airfield buildings, including the hangars, a spitfire pen and the control tower.

Damaged play equipment

After several failed attempts earlier this year, someone has finally succeeded in setting fire to part of the play equipment on the recreation ground.   The damage has made the structure too dangerous to use and so this has deprived children from playing on a much loved and well used part of the play area.


How sad to think that the considerable time and effort that went into providing a safe environment for the young children of this village has been destroyed by such a mindless act.

The police are treating this as arson and are using the CCTV coverage from the playing field to help with their investigations.  We need to find out who did this in order to stop this from happening again, so please contact them or one of the Village Hall and Recreation Committee members if you saw anything suspicious on the night  of Friday 1st May or the early hours of Saturday the 2nd.
