Diss Mere

The mere is absolutely central to Diss and it is such a surprise when you suddenly see this extraordinary stretch of water before you. I love that about it and I never tire of how beautiful it is. As part of the Diss Heritage Triangle project, we will build a viewing platform by the council offices with a path down to a floating island. A picturesque boardwalk will take you around the mere to the wonderful shopping yards.

Diss is a town rich in history – 72pc of the buildings in the Heritage Triangle have listed status – and the streets has hardly changed in centuries. I think the mere is why it survived the so-called town planning improvements of the 1960s.

The £3m Diss Heritage Triangle Project will bring together, promote and regenerate the town’s historic buildings and streets and transform the Corn Hall into a 21st century centre for arts and culture. The Diss Heritage Partnership has already secured funding from a number of organisations and it has just launched an appeal to raise £100,000 from the local community as it looks to secure the final funding necessary; www.heritagetriangle.co.uk.
