The general issue on mooring charges such as this, is often and indeed always will be, a bit of a hot topic on here.

It's not any reflection on how good or bad the particular pub or bar is, but it does usually generate some strong feelings, particularly with those who have been around on the Broads over ten or twenty years and recall such places, for example as The Swan and The Ferry in Horning who never used to charge a mooring fee.

Even when redeemable against food it is unfair to those who may just want a lunchtime stop for a drink. They are still spending money at the establishment!

So there will always be opinions and comments made whenever something like this is reported. Being a discussion forum means there's little chance of no comment till work is completed I'm afraid!

We don't often go down to Acle ourselves so it's not going to affect me personally, but I still can't sit on my hands  Wink  and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

For those commenting on whether the muddy path is the final job, or a work in progress, I'll try and find the planning details if I get a minute tomorrow.

Oh dear, the epitomy of tolerance and understanding! Were you not posting that you would  pay a further visit to Viaduct moorings to see and report if the surface had been  improved?? No questions on planning consent there! Do Pedro's not deserve the same consideration???

Planning permission was granted for the mooring improvement as part of the original application for the change of use of the buildings from workshops to resturant and bar. Its an extention to the existing gravel path of 120m or so plus more electric points.

Its worth the drive.

Trevor ! - where is your "understanding" and tolerance?  This is a forum for discussion therefore people will pass opinion .  But more to the point the Viaduct thread was started by someone asking about the works at the moorings and as I was there I gave an update.   And in this thread queries have been raised about what is happening along the bank at Acle  and I have added my opinion and also suggested where we might be able to find out exactly what's happening.

Nothing wrong with any of that that unless of course you are averse to my particular views or any opinion that doesn't match your own.

There has been a lot of discussion about the Viaduct moorings on here in another thread and with comments given directly from JP,  so we have plenty of information on that particular project, unlike this one.

Greenone - thanks for the info, saved me looking today. If you have a link you can post up here, that would be useful. Then anyone can look for themselves and see what's happening.

I say well done for anyone making improvements to the infrastructure. Much better than letting things decline.
There also free moorings on the opposite bank.
However I do feel that the planned BA structure at Acle is out of sorts and a waste of money.

Yes, it works fine, thank you.

It doesn't appear that any new moorings or quay heading are being put in, just a gravel path:

"Outside.......
To install 8 shore power post to the bank along a 230m stretch and continue the gravel walkway a further 126m."


Re the mooring charge, I don't have a problem with any premises that impose a charge, refundable or not. I simply don't patronise them.

I can understand why Pedro's would want to protect their own interests. If the refund was also against drinks, the cost of a half pint of lemonade would be a cheap mooring for someone who wanted to moor up and go over to the Bridge Inn for a meal, or walk into Acle to do some shopping. Acle Bridge seems to be becoming more and more popular (can't think why) and the moorings can be very busy.
