Topic: Wroxham Bridge Pilot

  Hi everyone,

Hiring a cruiser from Saturday to do a weeks fishing on the north rivers. I'm hoping to get under Wroxham bridge to head up to Coltishall so would need the services of the bridge pilot. I've tried to phone a couple times this week to confirm hours/days the service is operating but all I get is the answer phone! I've left a message and texted but as yet have had no reply.

Is the number still 07775 297638 and can anyone confirm that it is operating?

Thanks in advance.

  Hi Brayjam

The telephone number for the pilot you have is the same as I have.

Maybe you can get some help from Broads Tours who have their day boats by Wroxham bridge tel: 01603 78220

Good luck Cheers

Kind Regards

  Was chatting with him only about 20 mins ago so he is certainly still around!!

Not sure though what you are hoping to get under as water levels are pretty high at the moment - about 6'9" currently.

  The pilot dropped his phone in the river on Wednesday.On Thursday when we came back through he said it was being replaced that afternoon so you should get him now.
