Wrong Colingy - there will be public access for those on the canoe trail.

Bit like How Hill Marshes - access ONLY via the Electric Eel.

Bearing in mind that there has been none for so long, its a small beginning Smile  Take heart,- barriers like that take time to break down but don't ever expect cruisers as many like myself would oppose that!!!!

I do not believe that public access is paying the owner to sit in one of his canoes and be guided !!!

colingy, I understand exactly where you're coming from but there is a massive difference between 'public access' and 'public right of access'. In this particular case, there will be public access, on payment of a fee, at times and under conditions (eg guided access only) set by the owner/proprietor.

So in reality, nothing has really changed, except that the proprietor, having applied for millions of pounds funding to improve his property now has the right to allow people access to it on payment of a fee, whereas previously he only had the right to allow people access to it without payment of a fee.

And we are calling this progress? My dear old things, it simply is not cricket!

It stinks, and in my opinion casts a ugly stain on a once proud English family's name that shall remain for generations to come.

It is no wonder that Ian Fleming, whilst at school with the Honourable Freddie chose the Blofeld name as that of the arch villains in the James Bond series. Perhaps he knew, or forsaw something of the family character.

Edit to further limit possible legal ramifications!

I openly admit to having a problem with the National Lottery as from my personal observations in the various convenience stores in Walcott, Bacton, Mundesley etc. It appears to be those that can least afford to play spend the most.
I say good luck with this venture especially if it conserves and improves that area. BUT I strongly disagree with the Broads Authority, Natural England and Heritage Lottery bankrolling an extension to an already successful venture. Why can't Bewiderwood extend it's lines of credit?
If the BA wish to be involved they should run the access like they do at How Hill or members of the Canoe Union should be given access. Anything else should be privately funded. IMO.

And as I alluded to on another thread, if BA are spending money on this, then it is a perfect opportunity to bring Ra back and put her to the  use she was bought for. I am sure if Mike is still her skipper he would love to do tours on Hoveton Great. She would be quieter than a canoe and wheelchair accessable.

correct me if I'm wrong, but nothing will actually be getting onto Hoveton, the Canoe trail will only take you to the area near the broad to view it?
