Old Boots !!!


Recommended Posts

Some light hearted stuff ........

So as you head to Yarmouth from Acle, you start to encounter the marker posts. Around post 60/61ish there is a couple of old boots nailed to one of the posts. They have been there for absolute years much to the amusement of my children :lol:. Often wondered why, and by who.

One of lifes' great mysteries

I heard a tale that years ago a husband and wife were on the Broads. The husband was seemingly something of a philanderer and the wife, tired of him chatting up the local barmaids, nailed his boots to the post, presumably to stop him wandering! I belive also that these are not the original boots and have been replaced at least once. 

I can't vouch for this being the correct story but it does stick in my mind. Carol will most likely know cheersbar
