A few shots in Norfolk

When we went to Gt. Yarmouth last week and there were several boats on the move. It looked as if a boat yard were moving several of their hire boat up the Bure

As we crossed Breydon Water I spotted a pair of cruisers breasted up heading down stream so we stopped at the Bure to try for a photo or two. It turned out to be a cruiser bringing a brand new shell for fit out.

Boats can only get from the Yare to the Bure at low water as they have to get under the old Vauxhall railway bridge which use to carry the railway through the town. The tide was still running out as these boats pushed their way up the Bure but even so there was a lot of mud to be seen in the river.

We also visited Ranworth where we climbed the church tower, you who follow me on Facebook may have seen the first photo before.

The views from the top are quite spectacular and you are free to clime the spiral stone stairs to the bell chamber and then up a ladder to the very top. Although you can do this at any time of the day I would suggest you avoid doing it just on the hour as it can be a bit noisy.

As you can see the weather was not the best but we still enjoyed some great views across the broads.

Thanks for that Brian. Some very happy memories evoked.
I know the T is next to the Y - I think you meant the Yare?

Hi Brian, The ex Topcraft boats with the 'frenh windows' have been sold to Barnes Brinkcraft in Hoveton.

We remain on the broads with Grebe. Now moored at Stalham, best wishes Chris and Mal.
