Norfolk Broads holiday film 1978


Recommended Posts

Morning all! I've edited and uploaded another nice bit of cine footage of the Broads this week. This is another offering from the Vardy Family collection and dates from 1978. The group hired two boats between them - Saraline from Porter & Haylett and Royal Standard from Royall's boatyard. Mostly shot on the southern rivers, there is also some footage of the trip into Norwich and of the city itself. Quite a long section of sailing action too before the group head south.

For anyone interested, I've also uploaded a collection of over 60 photographs of the Broads c1925/26 this week too http://www.broadlandmemories.co.uk/1900to1949gallery23.html#bm1920s_nov2015

Next week's job is to transcribe and upload an original 1964 holiday log of a trip on the cruiser "Mandarin" which was hired from Richardson's. It's a good read! :-)


Anyway ... here's the film ...
