The next meeting of Barton Turf and Irstead Parish Council will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 18 June 2024 at the Black Shed on Barton Turf Staithe.



BARTON TURF is a lovely, small, unspoilt broadland village. It has its own staithe and boatyard giving direct access to Barton Broad. The village itself has many pretty cottages and there is a village green with pond. The village has no shop or pub, which helps to keep the village quiet and peaceful. The village church is about a mile out of the village and well worth a walk on a fine day.


The tiny village of IRSTEAD is tucked away and surrounded by water on two sides. In truth, there is little there except for a thatched medieval church and a collection of riverside houses. What makes Irstead so special though is its unspoilt riverside setting, almost cut off from the rest of Norfolk. It's a great place to escape the world and enjoy the beauty of the Norfolk countryside at its best.
