The marshes and waterways of the Broads have attracted visitors since the mid-1800s when the railway enabled access to, what was then, a pristine paradise.

This collection of stories, based on recorded interviews, provides a fascinating and wide ranging insight into the heritage and on-going changes in this land of water, mills and marshes.

WISEArchive is an oral history group made up of volunteers.  We believe that people make an important contribution to the community in the course of their working lives and are  a valuable resource of knowledge and experiences which should be preserved for future generations.  We are interested in how things were done and how things change.

The Broads is a unique mix of marshes, fens, rivers and broads which attract over 7 million visitors a year, and it is the marshes and waterways that form the backdrop for this book.

We have recorded almost 100 stories over three years about life, work and change in this remarkable area and we believe that this collection provides a wonderful insight from the perspective of those involved.  Stories relate current thinking and practice, disappearing jobs and skills, restoration of mills and wherries and conservation initiatives.  They offer differing views about the issues and challenges facing this ecologically fragile world.  They also highlight the passion and connection so many feel for this special place and how many developed their particular interests as children or young people.  The stories have been edited but the words and opinions are those of the contributors.
