windmills Broads Authority bursary scheme for millwrights and reed cutters

With the help of a £714,500 grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Broads Authority has plans to launch a bursary scheme this summer to train and employ 10 reed and sedge cutters for nearly two years each, and five millwrights for three and a half years.

Announcing the scheme on 17/1/06 on the marshes of Haddiscoe Island, near Yarmouth, Broads Authority landscape architect Lesley Harrison outlined their vision of restoring many of the 74 windpumps on the Broads, which are all listed. The aim is to return some at least to working order as an added attraction for visitors.
