The Hickling Living Landscape is one of the UK’s most important wildlife areas. Located in the northeast corner of the Broads, this 5,000-hectare area is dominated by Hickling Broad
(the largest of the Broads), which encompasses a range of wetland habitats including open water, reedbed and grazing marsh. Neighbouring Broads such as Horsey and Martham
are also part of the scheme, as well as the coastal plain, which includes important areas of heathland and sand dunes.
