Hi there! My name is Josh Templer. I’m reactivating Burton Turf Project by day, aspiring traveler by night, and this is my site. I live in Los Palos, have a great dog named Toss, and I like dark chocolate.
The ecclesiastical parish of Barton Turf now forms part of the civil parish of Barton Turf and Irstead in North Norfolk and includes much of Barton Broad, the second largest of the Norfolk Broads. One of 26 parishes in Tunstead Hundred, in 1841 it had a population of around 400.

The Project

The Barton Turf History Project is an attempt to collate and reference as much material as possible about the history of Barton Turf.
It is very much a live project with comments, suggestions, information and material being welcomed (see the News page for more details). The structure is dynamic and flexible, with changes being made as new information and material becomes available.
Many of the pages are awaiting development.

Finding Your Way About
The Main Menu provides buttons to access the main pages of the website. From these pages further buttons lead to sub-pages. Some pages contain hyperlinks to further sub-pages as well as links to other websites and embedded project files. The sub-pages also provide buttons to return to the main page or the Main Menu. Numbered boxes on the pages refer to sources of material listed on the Sources page. The Search box at the top of each page allows you to search the whole website for specific text. To make it easier to access external resources, most of the links embedded in the website have been summarised in a single file.

What’s New

The What’s New page is intended to keep you updated with changes to the website and the project.
