Parkers Piece and Bleyswycks Bank are fully open to the public

Bishops meet

It's official! After 18 months of hard work and the LOHP's newest sites, Parkers Piece and Bleyswycks Bank are fully open to the public. On Friday 10th June the Right Reverend Nigel Stock, Bishop of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich, and the Right Reverend Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, met on the border of their dioceses to open not only these newly restored fens but also 'Bob's bridge. Named after LOHP volunteer Bob Hayward, who masterminded the construction and led the team of volunteers who built it, the bridge links the new Suffolk fens with Betty's Fen on the Norfolk bank of the Little Ouse.
