Wendling Beck Exemplar Project

Wendling Beck Exemplar Project

A nature restoration project covering just under 2000 acres of farmland near Dereham, Norfolk.

The Wendling Beck Exemplar Project (WBEP) is a nature restoration project covering just under 2000 acres of farmland near Dereham, Norfolk.

Landscape-scale transformation will occur through river restoration and the creation and enhancement of grasslands, woodlands, wetland and other habitats. This will not only support nature recovery in Norfolk, but will also deliver improvements to water, soil and air quality, as well as capture carbon. In addition, WBEP aims to provide public access and education opportunities via a new ‘Environment Hub’ at Gressenhall Museum, as well as sharing experiences nationally and globally.

A film outlining the full project plan can be viewed here.

WBEP is a collaboration between 4 farmers, Norfolk Rivers Trust, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Norfolk FWAG and Norfolk County Council – forming the ‘Wendling Beck Alliance (WBA)’, and is supported by The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Natural England and Anglian Water.
