The changing nature of nature!

Autumn -activities -2016

As the name suggests, here at Bressingham Steam & Gardens we have equal enthusiasm for both the natural world and mankind’s technological achievements (albeit mainly those of yesteryear!) and how they interact with each other.

Now that many of us at home and abroad are feeling the effects of increasingly unpredictable weather patterns, Join us for a look through our archive of blog posts on the all things environmental!

Extreme weather steam trains

This post has some amazing Photos and video of locomotives working in the extreme weather conditions -mainly extreme cold but also this amazing image of a train travelling during monsoon season!

The link between Norfolk Apples and Railways

At the time of writing it won't be long before apple season will be upon us, so this post seems relevant!

This post tells the story of how between the 1700 and 1800s Norfolk orchards became the biggest apple producers in the country, and how Rail travel was instrumental in helping this to happen.

How has climate change affected Gardening

You’ve probably heard about the the recent release of the IPCC climate report and how it’s affecting things for everyone.

Somewhat presciently, all the way back in 2016, we spoke to our Head gardener Jamie Blake about his observations regarding climate change and how it’s affected his job.

Overall he's not impressed but he does manage to find one or two advantages such as longer growing season (So it’s not all bad news!)

Is the Internal Combustion Engine dead?

Cars and petrol engines are possibly one of the biggest symbols of the whole climate crisis problem - but we just love them so much!

In the second part of a series of posts (The first charting the journey from steam to diesel locomotives) we take a quick look at what makes the internal combustion engine different from other types of engine and what might be coming after it!
