Memories Of The 80's

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, newbie here. 

This is a bit of a long shot, this photo is me in 1985 on the broads somewhere! 

I would love to recreate this photo with my 15 yr old daughter in front of the same windmill, trouble is, I have no idea where it was. 

Can anyone help

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. 

It was back in 85' so maybe the fence /Bridge has been replaced. 

We are picking our boat up from Stalham on 1st Sept and I'm going to do my best to get another photo 33yrs later

It definitely IS Berney Arms Mill. Don`t forget the photo is taken at different angles, shooting from lower down the bank and pointing up, and at an angle from the river bank, so the symetry of windows etc may appear different, and as Jayfire has pointed out, the stile (not a bridge) is on the high level path between the mill and the river. 

It will be interesting to see the results of the difference in pics, plus Corina (welcome from me too by the way) should have her pic retaken in the same pose today.

Warm welcome to the forum :)

I dont think it would be wise for me to recreate this pic from 1970. Im the one on the left lol 


I always like old photos of Salhouse taken before the mooring quay was created. It brings back a strong childhood memory of climbing one of the trees looking down at our boat below, bow on the sand bank. Bring back sand banks I say, saves all that hassle of tying ropes around posts.
