We’ve been working to support and promote the countryside since ‘The Norfolk branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England’ was formed in 1933. Our work to protect all the things that make Norfolk unique is continuing to make an impact.

From the Bacton Gas Planning inquiry to the campaign to protect Halvergate Marshes, from the Broads National Park designation to our calls for a Green Belt for Norwich, it is a history of ensuring we have a thriving and beautiful countryside that everyone can enjoy into the future.
