A woodland walk in Whitlingham Country Park - path through Prehistoric Park
This wooded area of the park is called Old Wood. It is situated south of the River Yare and has been named Prehistoric Park. From the great number of flints found here it has been concluced that this is the location of a prehistoric flint-working site. The large deposits of chalk found in the vicinity are full of flints and would have provided an inexhaustible resource. Flint can be flaked to produce very sharp edges, making it an ideal material for tools, arrowheads and axes. Also found on the site was the tooth of a mastodon, animals which were hunted by prehistoric man with flint weapons.
Whitlingham Country Park
The park, located at Trowse just south of the city of Norwich, was created through the process of gravel extraction which began in 1990 with the creation of the Little Broad > LinkExternal link. In 1995 work began on the Great Broad > LinkExternal link. The park consists of two lakes (Great and Little Broad) and a beach and offers a full range of water-based activities > LinkExternal link as well as a number of cycle paths and woodland walks > LinkExternal link.
