Our Wild Mural Trail in Lowestoft

Our Wild Mural Trail in Lowestoft

Kevin Coote

To celebrate the amazing Carlton Marshes nature reserve, the gateway to the southern Broads, we’ve created a series of murals painted by street artist ATM.

The murals are situated on the walls of prominent buildings and highlight some of the special species that live on the reserve. The Carlton Marshes reserve is close to Oulton Broad South railway station and is just a short distance away from the bustling town of Lowestoft. You can discover the murals by following our walking trail.
