The Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail run by Waveney and Blythe Arts will be open from the end of July to the beginning of September. We are thrilled that Burgh Castle Almanac will be creating an inviting interactive dome that will embody something of the history and changing flow of the landscape. The structure will feature images and flora from Burgh Castle, and will be partly built on site using found wood, trees and branches.
