The Chalet at Natural Surroundings Wildflower Centre

THE CHALET

The Chalet is a small wooden building used for a variety of functions not least a favourite place to sit with your coffee and soak up the atmosphere .At the moment the building houses our harvest mouse breeding programme, a small library of natural history books, occasional exhibitions and can be hired by small groups, schools and parties.We moved the Chalet from a garden in Blakeney and it is thought to be a Wartime relic, definitely in use in WW2 but increasingly thought to be from WW1.

Artist Sarah Harley was moved to try and trace it’s history and to relate the Chalet to today’s modern use.  You can read all about it here. https://sarahharleyhutproject.wordpress.com/
