I was thinking there used to be a pub located down cess lane rather than ferrygate lane, there are dykes running off from the river all along that reach, not all join the river, but then it doesnt say it did.

I think someone established that while many of Ransomes Pubs were real The Roaring Donkey is fictional.

Actually I think it was an amalgum of other pubs in different locations, the Pike caught can be related to the one on show in the Swan, Horning, which now resides in the museum of the broads, caught by a child in the 1920's
