Turfy Mcturf Pond

For centuries this valley bottom was cut for peat but since the cessation of this 100 or more years ago the former areas of open water have been lost along with truly aquatic plant species like as Bog Bean and the Stonewort Chara vulagris. This pond restoration was therefore somewhat more of a ‘resurrection’. The pond was less than 25% shaded when it was restored as a shallow scrape on the 21st February 2020 by the NPP contractor team. The restoration was funded by NPP partner, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, as it is on a County Wildlife Site.
