Whitlingham C.P. (Norfolk)

Landscaped flooded gravel workings with small areas of parkland, agriculture and deciduous woodland. A local nature reserve run by the Whitlingham Charitable Trust & Broads Authority. The lakes are not actually broads, and nobody other than the Broads Authority call it 'Britain's Magical Waterland'. Whitlingham is known locally for its winter wildfowl, but also has a number of county first fungi records.
