  • Fairhaven Woodland and Water garden was created by Major Henry Broughton. The hall, woodland, water garden and inner broad were all part of the South Walsham Estate, which he purchased in 1946. In 1963 Major Broughton became the 2nd Lord Fairhaven, receiving the title as his elder brother had no heirs. Lord Fairhaven died in 1973. He had requested that the garden be left in Trust for the public to enjoy. The title of Lord Fairhaven passed onto his son Ailwyn, the 3rd Lord Fairhaven who is Chairman of the Fairhaven Garden Trust. The garden opened to the public on the 18th of April 1975. These delightful ancient woodland and water gardens with a private inner broad covering 131 acres, have something of interest for everyone who loves natural beauty. There is a sense of peace and tranquility; the combination of cultivated and wild flowers makes this garden quite unique. In spring, there are masses of primroses, bluebells, azaleas and rhododendrons in several areas. Candelabra primulas and some unusual plants grow near the waterways which are spanned by small bridges. In summer, the wild flowers come into their own. There is also a separate bird sanctuary for bird-watchers.
