Ah, OK, that's before my time. So in the background is that the corner by the Swan with Horning Sailing Club just off camera to the right?

And there's a very attractive large day boat hidden between the two. Silver Dart which according to Craig was still around in 2017.

I believe that I know her and something of her history. Her registration is, I think, W, she's a Waveney boat that once belonged to a Mr Bent of Beccles.

The day boat W714 is indeed still very much around .... she is used as a ferry by the Barton House Railway on their open days. Second row, middle picture:

Great photos btw Roy.

Admiral VII - My most favourite woody of all time.  Spent many holidays onboard her.  Wonder where she is now?

Think she's on the Thames at Oxford. If you look at the BeautifulBritain and the Nationalhistoricships websites there are articles on her.

A Norfolk Wherry at Bulcamp Lock on the River Blyth near Blyford and Wenhaston. The Lock was blown up by the Home Guard during WWII to as a precaution stop the invading Germans. Photo was taken in c1900s, I think.
