A 1.5 million grant will kick start a project to bring conservation, education and activity to the distinctive landscape of the Brecks.

The grant from the Heritage Lottery has been awarded to the project instigated by Breaking New Ground and Suffolk County Council.

Lisa Chambers, Breaking New Ground chairman and deputy leader of Suffolk County Council, said: “As a result of this award the partnership will be able to carry out a great number of exciting projects for the benefit of the Brecks landscape, heritage and communities.

“These will include the creation of a conservation volunteer centre, walking and cycling trails, heritage interpretation that tells the story of the Brecks.”

Among 37 projects of the £2.2 million scheme will be the restoration of the Pump House, Brandon Country Park, which will become a volunteer centre.

As well as this wildlife trusts will work with schools the University of East Anglia will carry out research and more people will be encouraged to enjoy The Brecks.
