Coltishall Lock


Recommended Posts

This week I've been enjoying Robin's video about Broad Ambition (see ' Forum I have an announcement' thread). Robin filmed the review at Coltishall lock, thereby informing me of a rare instance of a Broads mooring I've never visited! On the video it comes across as a pretty and peaceful location. However, on every occasion I've been to Coltishall, I've tended to chicken out and turn around past the Rising Sun and just after the sharp right hand bend? If I was to venture all the way to the lock are there any depth issues I need to worry about? (I remember Robin's depth gauge showed around 3.5 feet.)

Just a quick update,

the weed cutter was working the upper Bure to Coltishall lock a couple of weeks ago, plus the river was mud pumped above the Rising Sun during the winter.


Should you venture above the Rising Sun, the best turning point is next to the lock, above the river junction at the Norfolk Mead.

This is all great info, thank you gentlemen. When I saw Robin's video I couldn't believe I'd missed such a lovely spot every time I've been to Coltishall. Thanks to your replies all being well I shall venture there in September now, Wroxham Bridge permitting.
