His books, a series of stories based on his experiences as a young veterinary surgeon working among the farming community of North Yorkshire, sold in their millions throughout the world.

The ancestral home of the Dukes of Norfolk, the Castle boasts original Norman architecture alongside the splendour of a stately home. Its extensive Gardens are a masterpiece of horticultural design. Spring is welcomed in by the Annual Tulip Festival, when tens of thousands of the flowers burst into bloom throughout the beautiful Castle Gardens. Last year’s display was the largest to date, featuring more than 60,000 tulips and 120 named varieties. The 2019 festival is set to be even more spectacular, with tulips galore expected from midApril to early May. Keen gardeners should also take the time to visit the Castle’s second Spring Plant Fair on 29 April, as well as in May and June when thousands of pom-pom headed Alliums will take over the Castle Gardens and grounds in the annual Allium Extravaganza.

Visitors will cheer on the world’s finest jousters as they demonstrate their brawn and bravery – charging at each other atop specially trained horses, clad in full plate armour and wielding lances. The historical and sporting spectacular will keep spectators on the

edge of their seats with a series of thrilling hand-to-hand combat challenges and hunting skills contests. A fantastic group day out, festivities also include have-a-go archery, falconry displays, face painting, arts, crafts and storytelling throughout a tented medieval encampment against the backdrop of the stunning grounds and ancient Castle.

Explore Arley Hall & Gardens

Arley Hall is one of the most interesting and attractive stately homes in the North West. The elaborate ceilings & oak panelling, impressive fireplaces, intricate stained glass & beautiful contents are features which make Arley Hall so special. Visitors are enthralled by entering a piece of living history. It gives an intimate insight into life in the Hall and the history of a family that has cherished Arley as their home for over 500 years. Amongst the finest in Europe the Gardens have been created over the last 250 years by successive generations of the same family. They offer an unusual blend of long history and traditional design with inspired modern ideas and additions. The result is a garden rich in atmosphere, interest and vitality. The Herbaceous Border is its best know feature which is thought to be the first border of its kind planted in England. This along with the unique Quercus Ilex Columns, Pleached Lime Avenue of trees & the furlong walk make this simply the most amazing and interesting garden.

Within its eight acres of formal garden, which can take you several hours to meander around, there are many different areas, each with its own distinctive character. On the NE side of the house, beyond the Chapel is The Grove, a well established arboretum and a Woodland Walk of about 6 or 7 acre. The Grove has a pathway approx 1/3rd of a mile long & it will take you approx 30 minutes to walk around depending on your pace & interest in the planting, while the Woodland Walk is approx 1/5th of a mile long & will take you approx 15 minutes to walk, again depending on your pace. Arley was taken over by Birmingham gangsters in November 2015 after the BBC decided the hall would be the perfect home for Tommy Shelby in Series 3 of Peaky Blinders. Actors Cillian Murphy, Helen McCro­ry, Paul Anderson & Joe Cole spent a month filming here. Oscar-nominated Hollywood star Tom Hardy also had a day on set. Arley’s library was transformed into Tommy’s study and the opening wedding scenes were staged in the Drawing Room & The Gallery. More filming is taking place for the next series.

Where the Past Passes By..... Here you can see a unique project; the creation of a museum of street transport designed to show the development of mechanical transport over the best part of a century. The essence of transport is movement, so we are building a living museum where vehicles of yesteryear can be seen in action, where half-forgotten sounds of the past are brought back to life and where visitors can journey back in time by travelling on a few of the exhibits along the Museum’s streets. Many old vehicles seem ill at ease in a rural environment, so our aim is to develop a street scene of houses and shops, complete with authentic street furniture of bygone days, rescued by us from many parts of the country. At Carlton Colville we have one of the widest ranges of preserved vehicles of any museum, and further exhibits are still accepted from time to time, although restrictions on covered accommodation necessarily confine these mainly to items of local or specific historic interest. Our story began back in 1962 when four local tramway enthusiasts rescued the body of an old Lowestoft tramcar, no. 14, from its use as a summerhouse at Gunton. From this grew the idea of forming a transport museum, and as a result the East Anglia Transport Museum was founded on its present site in 1965. A Society was formed with the object of developing and running the Museum and started off with a few old vehicles which had been either donated or loaned, but with no other assets whatsoever. The huge task lay ahead of transforming a disused meadow,into a museum with depots, stores, workshops, administrative offices, refreshment facilities and toilets, not forgetting roads, tram tracks, overhead wiring for trams

and trolleybuses, and a light railway. The Museum is fully registered and has charitable status. Whilst it serves principally as a major tourist attraction in Waveney, great emphasis is also placed on its educational role. There is a chance to travel on types of vehicles now half forgotten, and you are free to wander around the Museum site or to take a stroll along our woodland path to the tram terminus at Hedley Grove. Other amenities include our shop, which is particularly well stocked with books and souvenirs, and the Terminus Tearooms where light refreshments are reasonably priced and ice cream and soft drinks are always available.

The epic and best-selling novel by Richard Adams, Watership Down, has just been adapted for the BBC (UK) and Netflix (Worldwide, with UK coming in Spring 2019) with the ragtag band of rabbits redrawn and transformed by animation for a December 22nd 2018 release. With voice overs from John Boyega, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Olivia Colman within this new animated adaptation of Watership Down, all is set for a memorable blockbuster. Ben Kingsley is superb in his horrifyingly realistic portrayal of General Woundwort. We strongly recommend you view this new adaptation and are delighted to announce that Moorcroft have been asked to create an artistic homage to this new television adaptation. For 2019, Moorcroft journey with their on-screen partners: Hazel, the brave and wise leader; Bigwig, the strong yet impetuous warrior; and Fiver, the prophet who provides them with the impetus to avoid danger, and discover new found design territory, where art and heritage skills bring acclaimed words and animation to life. Enter the Moorcroft Downs with a twitch of the nose, and remember that Frith shines gloriously above, warning and providing testing exposure to The Thousand, enemies that you will eventually

overcome as imagery of the natural world calms the soul. You will not be pounced upon by the Pfeffa with her sharp claws and fearful teeth, the Lendri with its black and white striped face will not give you a painful bite, and the traps and snares of the Elil will be far from you. These designs are all created in the light, and Inlé, the darkness, will not harm you. Even when you see the face of The General in Moorcroft’s hauntingly brilliant design, you merely see that the dark warrior is underground, look up and the natural world hold soft autumnal trees with leave that transform into billowed sails. In truth, you instinctively know, that together, he can be overcome. So rise up on your haunches and peer through the wild grasses and smell the faint scent of wild garlic in the breeze, as you journey through scenery entirely created by Moorcroft designer, Emma Bossons FRSA and rabbits carefully transported from their on-screen personas by fellow Moorcroft designer, Kerry Goodwin. Become at one with Moorcroft at its very best. Each vase represents a rabbit with unique and distinct qualities originally harnessed by author Richard Adams, and now, under the watchful eye of Moorcroft’s Art Director, Elise Adams.

The exhibition comprises a recreation of Walmington on Sea the fictional home to Captain Mainwaring and his men.

Along the street there is Jones’ Butchers shop, Swallow Bank, Frasers Funeral parlour as well as Walmington on Sea Post Office, a printers and Toy Shop. Bressingham was happy to lend to the BBC some of its historic collection to feature in the show, Traction Engines and Rollers feature in episodes but probably the most memorable exhibit in the Bressingham collection is the Fire Engine. You can also see the staff car Pike took his girl to the pictures in, Jones’ Butchers Van and the town dustcart – both as featured in the feature film of the 1970s.

day, over 30 years after the filming of the very first episode. Who can forget the inimitable characters played by Clive Dunn, Arthur Lowe, John Laurie, John Le Mesurier, Jim Beck, Ian Lavender, Arnold Ridley, Frank Williams, Edward Sinclair and Bill Pertwee! Not only did the show make household names of these main characters, but it also brought a host of other ‘comedy faces’ to our television screens for the very first time. The series was filmed in and around Thetford (including the Stanford training area) and included many local residents from the surrounding countryside. The release of the 2016 Feature Film only goes to show how the show has lived on un the minds of the public, and is always ready to gently amuse the young and the old of every generation. The Dads Army exhibition is housed amongst the steam exhibits of road and rail at Bressingham alongside 18 acres of stunning Bloom family gardens.

The Television Series ‘Dad’s Army’ ran from 1968 to 1977 with a total of 80 episodes - and you can still catch the repeats to this
