Rockland Staithe can be found at the end of dyke which leads from the River Yare. A short cruise along the dyke brings you to Rockland Broad, which has to be one of the most scenic stretches of water on the whole system. You will need to keep between the posts which will guide you across the broad towards another dyke which leads to the staithe. This section is quite narrow and you should proceed with care. Eventually, it opens out onto the staithe which has free moorings for around 12 to 15 boats. You have plenty of room to turn here which you will need to do as moorings are stern on. There are actually two dykes that lead to and from Rockland Staithe. Both take you back out on to the River Yare. Take a look at our village map linked below for full details.

Local Attractions: Rockland Broad is close by and a 10-minute walk through the countryside from the staithe will take you to a bird hide which overlooks the Broad. This is part of the Wherrymans Way which continues on to skirt part of the river Yare right up to the outskirts of Norwich. For more information on the Wherrymans Way and its associated walks click HERE

Eating and Drinking: The New Inn can be found just across the road from the staithe moorings. The New Inn has a restaurant as well as serving bar food. There is occasional live music in the main season.

Other Services:A Post Office Stores and newsagent is a pleasant 30-minute walk from the moorings through the village of Rockland St Mary. Walk up the hill from the moorings. The store is at the far end of the same road. Water and refuse disposal is available on the right-hand bank after passing under the bridge. 

TIP: When leaving Rockland Broad travel down the other dyke to that which you used to arrive. Both dykes are different and are worth seeing.
