Former Giles landscaping, Welney, to be camping site

A campsite and heritage center has opened in a village that has become a popular tourist spot for bird watching.

Land and buildings on the former Giles Landscaping Yard in Welney can now be converted into the new facility.

It has space for 20 parking spaces – but the conditions state that standing caravans and motorhomes are not allowed.

Documents submitted to West Norfolk Council with the building application indicate that the Welney Heritage Center will include historical artifacts, photos and video footage of village life.

Land drainage, agriculture and ice skating are among the topics discussed.
