Norfolk Broads City, town and Village low-down - Ludham

Ludham, not to be confused with Ludham Bridge situated on the River Ant, is a pretty picture postcard village to be found at the head of Womack Water, a broad which is connected to the River Thurne by a fairly narrow dyke. Moorings can be found at the furthest point from where you enter the broad in the form of a local authority staithe. There is room for around 14 to 16 boats moored stern on to the quayside. Water and waste disposal facilities are available nearby. There is a fee of £3.00 per boat payable for overnight stays. Though moorings are relatively plentiful here it should be noted that due to their picturesque setting, they are very popular and tend to fill up by around 3-4pm most afternoons. Unless you have a plan B it would be wise to arrive no later than mid-afternoon if you intend staying overnight.

The village lies around 10 to 15 minutes from the staithe and is a pleasant walk down country lanes and thatched cottages such as the ones in the above image.

Local Attractions: The village has 1000 years of history and has many thatched cottages and other historic buildings. St. Catherine's Church is very special with its rare painted Rood Screen and is well worth a visit. Many local walks are suggested in a pamphlet available from Throwers stores.

Eating and Drinking: Kings Arms- Restaurant and bar food. Regular live music at weekends. Tea Room - both in the village centre.

Other Services: Throwers Stores, a small supermarket and a butchers and a doctors surgery can be found in the village centre. Public toilets and refuse disposal are available at the staithe.

TIP: The Kings Arms public house gets very busy as it serves both the village and the many chalet hirers in Potter Heigham. If you are eating out, it would be advisable to book a table here. If visiting during the evening, a torch is a must as the route back to the staithe is mostly unlit.
