Made by the River Exhibit


Join Vision Norfolk on a trip to the Ancient House Museum in Thetford to experience their Made by the River exhibition. Made by the River tells the engaging story of the town’s old riverside industries from the 1800s to the 1980s. Displays featuring evocative names such as Fison’s fertilizers, Burrell’s steam engines and Bidwells brewery conjure up the sights, sounds and smells of the town’s rich industrial heritage. The ancient town of Thetford grew up on the banks of the rivers Thet and Little Ouse. 


The visit will be on Tuesday 21st of May. The minibus will be leaving the Vision Norfolk Norwich Hub (Bradbury Activity Centre, Beckham Place, Edward Street, Norwich NR3 3DZ) at 10am and returning at around 3:30pm or if you’d prefer you can meet us at the Ancient House Museum. Lunch will be available in the Bell in Thetford but needs to be pre-booked.
