We saw loads on the canals, on the non towpath side, so easy picking.

Not seen any on the broads banks yet...

There always were lots around the Berney Arms area and the railway station. Chris Sheppard used to make them into a strong alcoholic drink.He called it Bullace.and used to give it to his regular customers at The Berney - they always came back for more!!...Dave R............

Probably get shot for this but I ordered mine online from Somerset... Partly because I don't know any local places where they grow and partly because I'm lazy...

Loads along the Waveney River Bank, most notably just upstream of Worlingham 24hr mooring. A delightful walk for those who aren't too lazy!

The trees on the Horning bank of the Bure, south of Cockshoot dyke, were purple with sloes last week. You could easily nose in and pick 'em from a boat.

cheers

Come out of WRC and turn left along the road - hedgerow full of them and if you do the loop (stop at the pub in Burgh St Peter) there are greengages or some other small type fruit along that road. We didn't die after we ate a few but not sure what they were!! Plenty of blackberries as well if you need any.

You can also add to jams as well,berries seem to ripen slower inon the broads I use home as a guild our berries seem to ripen earlier quicker then the broads.

 

What ever enjoy your sloes Ian
