River Thames Past Hire Yards


Recommended Posts

At their peak in the 80s the Broads had getting on for 100 hire yards. Now there are about 15.

Similarly the Thames had almost 40 yards hiring cruisers. Now I don't think there are even a handful.

List of Thames yards attached taken from The Thames Book 1982.
