This is a Broads One Design, often called a Brown Boat, and they’re very common on the Norfolk Broads.
The Nancy Oldfield Trust is based at Barton Broad and provides activities including sailing, canoeing, motor boating, fishing, bird-watching and environmental studies for anyone who is disadvantaged or has a disability, and good for them – I imagine anyone stepping out of the boat at the end of this ride would have felt that life was good and that they were about ten feet tall.

A typical Broadland river scene on the way to the
staithe at Stalham, and the Museum of the Broads. My
daughter loves coiling unused mooring lines. And note the
ubiquitous Broads mud weight!
