I remember going up the Dilham canal in my kids’ little Mouseboat years ago – it’s well worth the trip to find a lost part of The Norfolk Broads.
And while I’m at it… photographer Lord Paul is the man who is everywhere on The Broads. If you don’t already known the network of rivers, staithes, lakes and peat workings, his collection of YouTube videos certainly provide a taste of what you’ll find.
A promotional video about holidays on the Norfolk Broads made in 1948. Holidaymakers were allowed 100 miles-worth of fuel for engines but otherwise had to rely on the wind. which ‘still blows from all quarters, uncontrolled and free of tax’.
Here’s another suggestion in a series of posts about last-minute Christmas gifts… These entertaining shots are included in this year’s Museum of the Broads calendar – I gather they’re just a £5 if you contact the museum.
