Norfolk Broads Towns & Villages - How Hill Map

River Ant River Ant
How Hill moorings can be found around a 30-minute cruise upstream from Ludham Bridge on the River Ant. They are plentiful, free and you would be unlucky not to find a space. The moorings closest to the boathouse (top left in the first image are also closest to the amenities of How Hill. As such, if you have anyone onboard who has difficulty in walking, aim for this end of the moorings.

Local Attractions: How Hill actually refers to a large house on the brow of "How Hill" which can be seen from the river. It is an educational establishment where school parties often reside during the week. The How Hill site includes Toad Hole, a period thatched cottage depicting the life and conditions of an Eel Catcher in times gone by, which is located close to the boat house in the above image. You can stroll through extensive garden and woodland trails including the popular Secret Gardens. The Electric Eel is a small passenger boat that will take you along the backwaters of the area to see the hidden dykes of the How Hill National Nature Reserve. How Hill has its own website for more information which can be found HERE. You could easily spend a couple of hours here before continuing your cruise. It makes an ideal stop-off point whilst en-route to your lunch or evening moorings.

Eating and Drinking:
The site incorporates a Tea Room which is open on weekends only from the last week in May until the summer holidays start, when it will open daily. Here you can purchase cakes, scones, and sandwiches together with hot and cold drinks. 

Other Services: There are no other services at these moorings.

TIP: If you want to travel on the "Electric Eel" boat you would be advised to book in advance as places are limited and many people will want to experience the cruise on the day. More information HERE.
