Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) Overview
The Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) is a voluntary body, established in 1995. It aims to increase knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of Thetford Forest and to encourage the involvement of the local community and general public in Thetford Forest's future development.
Whilst the Friends of Thetford Forest shares common aims and works in close collaboration with Forestry England, it is an independent body serving the needs of members and visitors to Thetford Forest.

About Thetford Forest
As well as timber production, Thetford Forest is managed by Forestry England to provide a range of public benefits which include rural development, recreation and sustainable nature conservation. Visitors and members of the Friends of Thetford Forest enjoy the facilities of car parking, picnic areas, waymarked walks and all-ability trails.
Thetford Forest encompasses 20% of the Breckland Environmentally Sensitive Area, making it potentially the greatest contributor, under one land ownership, to Breckland conservation.
At High Lodge Forest Centre, there is a gift shop, restaurant, children's adventure play area, cycle hire, forest trails, High Ropes Course, and special events throughout the year.
