Carbrooke Plough

It’s great to see the Carbrooke Plough back on its plinth outside Carbrooke Village Hall 2024

It was originally cast at Carbrooke foundry many years ago, and renovated by prisoners at Wayland prison, before being placed on its plinth in 2012.

After 10 years open to the elements, it was beginning to deteriorate, and has now had its wood work replaced and a re-paint of the ironwork by a Carbrooke resident.
Many thanks to all concerned.

Few can dispute that in the past few years, great changes have affected worldwide society and local communities.Carbrooke has experienced demographic changes with an increase in housing stock and has moved away from being a small agricultural community in just a generation.

Preparing the Millennium Green by traditional means.

Carbrooke Heritage Group, have exciting plans to create a community record of life in Carbrooke 2023 which will coincide with a new era in Britain with the Coronation of King Charles.

We are excited to be working with Ben at Nimble. a video, photo and editing company from Dereham, to produce a documentary style film of the parish, incorporating drone film, heritage images of the village, and personal memories from residents and community organisations.
