Reedham Ferry moorings

Recommended Posts

Decided to go via the Reedham ferry on our way back from the boat at Richardsons yard today. Didnt have to hang about and off we went. It was good to see so many boats from Richardsons moored down there but they were only moored on the Oulton Broad side , shall I call it and none on the wooden moorings. Is there some reason for this. We could see a notice but could not read it.

Did see Carousel moored in the Yard at Richardsons, but despite wanting to go aboard as the notice invites you , it was locked, probably because it was lunchtime ish. If she is there again it would be such a treat to look inside.

Despite the forecast the weather although chilly in the wind was glorious.

Hi M.

I believe from memory that the signs warn that the walkways are

not in very good condition but not sure how they are worded. They did'nt

look like somewhere I would want to try and tie up!

We did wonder why everyone was down the other end, so to speak. They use to be such good moorings and we spent many a happy hour there. What a shame. Was quite suprised that the Ferry crossing is £4 and £7 for a day return. Saying that worth every penny. Pity the chap operating it couldnt be a bit more cheerful. May be having a bad day.

Those moorings also flood on springs and cut you off from the pub!, the sighs say slippery when wet aswell :wave

The signs are just too kind! They're downright dangerous when wet! :shock::shock::shock:

Best not think of mooring there. If they are that bad they should be roped off with that red tape.

They used to be good moorings.

Surely that's for a car and however many pax onboard?

Yes indeed it was for the car. He seemed to be doing a roaring trade.

On a good day , weatherwise, it makes a change to come that way.
