Many of the Voices have memories of the Broad and of working on the marshes.
Amongst other things, you will find memories of swimming on the Broad in the summer, and of skating in the winter, of coot shoots and of fishing in what was crystal clear water until the sea flooded in.
Memories of the marshes relate to reed and sedge cutting, farming, wildlife and conservation.
This section overlaps with the sections on Farming, Workdays, Summertime and Wintertime, and you will find more relevant memories on those pages.
