Norfolk Wildlife Trust


The largest of the Broads, NWT Hickling Broad is a year-round haven for wildlife. It is easy to spend a day walking around its trails or, in summer, gently whiling away a couple of hours taking in the Broad’s hidden corners on one of NWT’s boat tours. Download timetable here.

Hickling is situated on the Upper Thurne river system, which holds a significant percentage of the UK population of common crane as well as important breeding numbers of bittern, marsh harrier bearded tit and Cetti’s warbler. In winter large numbers of marsh harriers roost in the reedbed north east of Stubb Mill; merlin and hen harrier are also regular. Barn owl is almost guaranteed and you may see kingfisher if you are lucky. Interesting mammals include the introduced Chinese water deer, red deer and hard-to-see otters.

Among the many insects are two iconic local specialities – the swallowtail butterfly and the Norfolk hawker dragonfly – though many equally rare, albeit lesser-known, invertebrates also occur. Plants are well-represented, with the important milk parsley: the larval food plant of the swallowtail.

Hickling Scrabble Club/Friendship Club Now The Tuesday Club

The Friendship and Scrabble Clubs have both been amalgamated due to falling membership and without any new members joining.
The Friendship Club has been in existence for approx. 50 Years albeit with various name changes.
It was first known as the Forget Me Not Club then the Cameo Club and in recent times
The Friendship Club.
The new club will be known as the Tuesday Club.
The Tuesday club will meet on the 2nd. and 4th. Tuesday of every month where members can enjoy games
of Scrabble and Whist plus a cup of tea and biscuits.
All are welcome whatever their experience. Just turn up on the day

Hickling Bowls Club

The Bowls Club was formed over 60 years ago in 1932, and has played on the same green just off Stubb Road ever since. The green has a lovely setting, bordered on one side by flower beds, with a fine Clubhouse, and a good view of Hickling mill. Also, there is a small car parking area.

Outdoor green bowling has a long history in England, with many famous players in the past, including Henry VIII and Sir Francis Drake. Quite how they managed to keep their greens up to scratch is hard to comprehend. Our green has a high reputation in the area, which reflects the huge amount of time and effort put in by our green keeper and his assistants. Not only does it look good, it also plays beautifully.

Of course, outdoor bowling has a short season, as we are dependent on light summer evenings for most of our fixtures, playing throughout May, June, July and August. During these few months there is no let up: we play in three leagues: Great Yarmouth, Broadland and the County 3wood; also we have various cup matches. Then there are the Club competitions for singles and pairs.
During the season there are our well supported BBQs - open to members and friends - when a "friendly" bowls competition is combined with socialising round the barbecue - what better way to pass a summer's evening!

Though we are a small club in numbers, we are a big club in friendship and support. If you would like to find out more, come along any evening when we are playing at home and have a chat.

Hickling Local History Group

The Hickling Local History Group was established in June 2000 to promote a greater knowledge of the history of Hickling. It aims to study all aspects of the history of the Parish of Hickling and, given that today's activities are tomorrow's history, and can shape the future, the scope of the Group studies includes contemporary history and interest in the future of the village.

The Group has formed an archive of documents, illustrations, records, etc. about Hickling. It arranges meetings, lectures, film shows and exhibitions as well as at least one field meeting a year to explore aspects of village history. It publishes a quarterly newsletter and has published booklets on the history of Hickling and its residents.

A brief outline of the history of Hickling can be found at Village History Webpage
