Blue Can Trail
Until Monday 19th July. Ringland Lane, Norwich, NR8 6
Come and see on the ground where the Norwich Western Link would be built if it allowed to go ahead.
Marked with blue tin cans - this brings home the massive area of peaceful countryside that will be destroyed.
Local residents have not been provided with accurate maps of the proposed route so this can help show what will be cut off.
Stand in the area and imagine a dual carriageway with cars roaring by at 70mph.
Ringland Lane and the Broadway have been marked so far. Further areas will be marked, look out for our next tin can trail event,
(cans are monitored and will be removed at a later date)

Munnings: The Wensum Valley, an English Idyll
We were delighted to welcome Dr Bill Teatheredge (Munnings Museum Curator) who gave a talk on Munnings’ time painting in the Norwich area, especially the Ringland Hills, in the first decade of the 20th century.
This is a period when he was determined to be an artist in his own right. Munnings subject matter would be the countryside he knew so well and the folk who lived there. This was his English idyll.
A recording of the talk is below
Paint Out in the Wensum Valley
On Saturday 17 October we invited painters and other artists to create pieces along the proposed route for the Western Link Road. It drizzled early in in the day, but the weather quickly cleared up - and we couldn't be happier with the results! We hope to do some more events like this.
