Carbrooke History & Heritage

Parachuting Teddies

Carbrooke, Norfolk is a small agricultural village. It has a surprising and fascinating history, with influences through the centuries from around the world.

'Carbrooke Heritage Group,' was formed in 2012.  The group has been involved in a number of projects to research, log and publish aspects of village history. Also to raise the profile of Carbrooke and its heritage.

The aim of this website is to bring together this information. If you have any comments, information, anecdotes or photographs to share, please contact us

Return to Carbrooke Teddy Trail

To encourage young people into church and to take an interest in the heritage of Carbrooke, we have created a Teddy Trail, to tell the story of Carbrooke and its people. Members of the community, have provided the teddies.

For several years the church arranged a 'Parachuting Teddies' event. People were invited to bring their teddies and enrol them to parachute from the top of the church tower. Its a long way down for a teddy! Some teddies decided to investigate the tower walls on their way down, and one decided to fly off in the wrong direction, getting caught in a tree, but most of them behaved themselves. The one who travelled the furthest  was the winner.


In 2014 the teddies zip wired from the ringing chamber inside the church instead.
