A new community woodland project began in Fiddlewood in February 2004.

The aim of this project is to support Fiddlewood residents to become more
involved with the local woodlands, have more control over what happens to
them, and to work to ensure they become a valued natural area for people to enjoy. BTCV, the UK’s largest practical conservation charity, is working in
partnership with the Cat n’ Fiddle Partnership, Norwich City Council and Fiddlewood residents to look after and develop the Fiddle and Night plantations on the Fiddlewood estate. The project is one of 4 projects being undertaken by the Norwich City Council n the Catton Grove area. Without the involvement of local people this project will not succeed. All residents require to get involved is to be Interested and concerned about their local neighbourhood.

Why’s it called Fiddlewood?
Fiddlewood was known as Fiddle Plantation in the 1800s though the area has
been woodland much longer than that – possibly over 1000 years! It was
called this apparently because the shape of the wood on a map forms the
shape of a fiddle! But Fiddlewood is also a tropical tree species native to
Florida – which doesn’t grow in this wood!
The wood was part of the Catton Hall estate until 1974 when the Fiddlewood
part was sold to Norwich City Council. A proposal, recently submitted to the
Heritage Lottery fund, to redesign Catton Park with improved footpaths and
wildflower areas describes the park as being important to art-historians
because it was the first commission of the well-respected Victorian Landscape designer – Humphry Repton. The project is trying to discover whether Repton was involved in the design and planting of Fiddlewood and Night plantations.
