Firstly apologies , if this is a well worn subject -
but !

Does anybody know of places that a Kayak can be
launched on any of the broads. I'd be looking for a
parking space for the van and a reasonable drag to the
edge. Lowering the Kayak isn't a problem so a drop down
is OK , slip not required but does make life easier.

I've been launching at Whitlingham, Bramerton,
Surlingham, Wroxham, Horsey, Beccles, Oulton and
Hickling, but
am now getting bored with the same scenery and would
like to explore other areas !

Any help greatly appreciated

Barton Turf staithe makes a good launching site.  There
is a car park and easy access to the water - you have
choice of drop down over the moorings or soft launch on
what is not quite a slip but works fine for a kayak.

Wayford Bridge has ideal facilities for canoe launching and parking.

There's free parking for several cars along a quiet slip road off the A149.

The slip is quite tight for trailed boats, but ideal for canoes.  Within about 50 yards of Wayford Bridge, it gives good access to the old NW&D canal (very quiet, no powered craft permitted). Smile

I'm pretty sure that Barton Turf staithe belongs to the parish and I thought there was restriction on launching canoes there.

As always I await to be shot down if wrong.

You could try Stalham Staithe behind the museum.

Anywhere is the short answer , just looking to paddle
different sections.

Thanks for the replies so far.

You could try Thurne public slip, or Irstead there is a slip or just drop over the key, both have parking.

I've seen the canoe tour people finish trips at Dilham staithe and collect the customers and crews there.  You can park on the road.

Again you have quiet waters, SWayford Bridge and the River Ant navigation to go at.
