Norfolk Broads Boat Hire October 2020 Newsletter

November Boating Holidays
Well, as we advised earlier, the boating season has been extended into November by a number of boatyards. This is no doubt in part, to try to make up for the lost weeks of business from March through to July. So what can you hire in November? There's quite a range of craft on offer. Here are some examples, if you like the idea of a late Autumn break afloat.

Summer 2021 Bookings
It's striking how many bookings are being made for next summer. Many people took the option to transfer their breaks from this year to next, following the lockdown which forced the cancellation of holidays between March and June. But bookings are being taken right across the season now. Whether they are from those who were disappointed this year, or from people who would prefer to stay in the UK under the present circumstances, the best advice is to start making enquiries as to what's still available. It's highly likely, summer 2021 will be a sell out.

Norfolk Broads towns and Villages - Irstead

Reedham Ferry

Reedham Ferry is situated around one mile from Reedham village on the River Yare. Moorings are free for patrons of the Reedham Ferry Public House. Extra care needs to be taken when mooring here or at any point on the lower Yare as the tidal flow is quite fast when it is ebbing out to the sea . This part of the River Yare houses the last working chain ferry in Norfolk. It operates on a demand basis for car drivers and pedestrians. You will see it regularly crossing and will probably notice the chains in front and behind the ferry which are evident when it is on the move. Be sure to not pass too close as these chains can snag your propeller and could even end up dragging your boat alongside the ferry. You should approach the moorings against the prevailing tide. That is to say, if you were to put your boat into neutral, you would feel the tide pushing it backwards. This way you will have more control when approaching the moorings. Once moored ensure you have enough rope around the mooring posts to allow for a 3 foot or so tidal rise and fall.

Local Attractions:
A pleasant 30 minute walk through countryside from here takes you to the village of Reedham. Here you will find a sizeable village with an attractive riverside quay.
A short walk from the moorings is Reedham train station with good connection to Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. As such this stop makes other parts of the Broads which you may not have time to visit more accessible.

Eating and Drinking: The Reedham Ferry Inn is adjacent to the moorings. It offers a varied selection of meals and snacks. In nearby Reedham village are two pubs, the Lord Nelson and the Ship. Both are popular with boaters and locals, offering a full menu food service.

Other Services:
A general stores/post office can be found in Reedham village as can a fish and chip shop.
