  1. I remember the very first time seeing the 3 rivers race we were in a bungalow at potter, we'd never heard of it with 3 small lads sat on the front watching these yatchs racing up & down the river what a magic site, we sat up all night watching these big sails coming across the lawn , the lads were hooked ,that was back in the mid 80s,
  2. Thank you for that very good explanation, It should be kept for future posts on that " bridge "
  3. As I read it it was something to do with farmers loosing their water licenses in the Ant valley, it was in yesterday EDP web page , wish I was clever to put it on here,
  4. I also forgotten scotters ( I think that's what it's called ) the cafe in acle , nice walk down the path from the bridge, very reasonable price, cooked when ordered, gets busy, All items for a British brecky,
  5. On way down to broads we stop at Bennys dinner on the Way just before Sutton Bridge, lovely Breakfasts, thick cut toast a big Benny does us all day, Reasonably priced to,

  8. Hi all from reading EDP and your threads why couldn't they have done it last autumn or early spring, We have simlier issues with builders taking down house sparrow / marting swallow & swifts, on over 40 houses they've put up 20 boxes on the back of houses , It's case of not understanding birds coming back to same best site year after year, if the nest site gone birds gone, We need to protect what we have got look at RSPB bird count,
  9. On way down to broads we stop at Bennys dinner on the Way just before Sutton Bridge, lovely Breakfasts, thick cut toast a big Benny does us all day, Reasonably priced to,
  10. We like flour & bean at potter for breakfast ,fresh cooked when ordered, also some nice scones, You can't beat bridge inn at acle for supper,
  11. Hi all,'re 'That Bridge' we were on countess of light a few years back & wanted to go through that Bright the pilot said now tide to high , river showing 5ft -4 so we say & watched him take several other centre cockpits through and asked again he said yes ,what had changed we didn't know! !!! He also said we had to be back the next day by the same time 4pm ish or we wouldn't get back through, Looking at the tide tables that was low tide time for that area & this was summer time not much rain, Question does the pilot regulate how many boats go through the bridge? Fair enough a lot of the bigger ones can't but if river's low and heights right why not, Look forward to your answers
  12. Congratulations enjoy your times on the broads,
  13. Hi all reading all your quotes about norfolk boat jumble, when we were looking for bits & pieces we want to Newark & hull they were both the same hull was in a farmer's field & pick your way around the cow pats, We got the impression they thought we didn't know anything about boats, & prices very steep ,
  14. Lovley reading all these , Thank you, we were on kingfisher in the 90s, moared at reedham for the night, heard a cruiser come past during the night felt our boat lift up and drop down again , got up & checked ropes to see further down lights & torches against a larger holiday cruiser that had been crushed against the side and was sinking, we helped the family get out before it sank, In the morning out dingy had sank to as been caught under foot way, Family from sunk boat took away by BA to boat yard,
