The Earth Heritage Trail is an App based resource for accessing some of The Brecks' hidden geological gems. Through these web pages and the App the Earth Heritage Trail aims to introduce visitors, students and local residents to the area's little-known wealth of Earth heritage features. There are 18 publicly accessible points of interest chosen for their geology, landforms and links with earliest human settlement; they may be visited in any order.
This trail is available in various formats, including hard copy (while stocks last). You can get your copy of the Earth Heritage Trail book at Brandon Country Park and various local museums and heritage outlets in and around the Brecks.
The Brecks is one of the great natural areas of Britain. It is an area of sandy and chalky land covering some 940 km2 (370 sq m) in Norfolk and Suffolk. It has a fascinating Earth heritage, with a story of early human settlement set against a geological backdrop of millions of years of environmental change. Wind, ice and water have all shaped the landscape we see today
The Trail is being delivered by the Norfolk Geodiversity Partnership as part of the Breaking New Ground Landscape Partnership Scheme, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
