A few weeks ago the water was high and I took particular attention to the height gauges at Ludham bridge. There are 4 gauges 2 each side of the bridge. The first one heading downstream was reading 7 foot 9 inches the second 7 foot 8 inches the third 7 foot 6 inches  and the fourth 7 foot 4 inches so 5 inches difference between them.

This video isn’t at Ludham Bridge but it does show that even with height gauges on the bridge and the helmsman knowing the airdraft of the boat some people still manage to get it wrong.
