On our June visit we moored up just before Ludham Bridge (on the opposite side of the bridge to the general store/post office. Not opposite the boat yard but just before, with the grass freshly cut it made a pleasant stop,) it was £3.50 over night and paid at the general store.
On our September visit this mooring was fenced off with no mooring signs all along the bank.
Does any one know why???????

Hi Janine

I have made some enquires. My understanding is that this section of bank is private property. The owner only recently started charging for the moorings and has now decided not to allow moorings anymore. Exactly what his thinking is, I don't know.
There are plenty of other moorings at Ludham Bridge. The bit upstream on the right is the Parish Staithe and this will always be available. Us residents have the right to load and unload cargo here.
The moorings near the bridge have changed a lot over the years. The parish staithe used to be downstream of the bridge where the boatyard now is. This all changed when the new bridge went in. The cut below the boatyard now used for private moorings is the site of a former wind pump.

At least there is now a warning sign at the mouth of the Ant about the lack of yacht moorings. We just ied up to the "no mooring" posts to take the stick down.

There's been quite a lot of publicity about this locally.  I understand that some clumsy person injured themselves falling off their boat whilst trying to moor here, and subsequently sued the landowner - who can blame him for fencing it off?  Unfortunately greed and the new "compensation culture" that we have imported from the USA is likely to lead to more of this.

Yes this is the case BB... Also when the owner enquired about insurance to cover him in future the premium made the whole thing unviable... So no moorings.
