Hi All, I'm staying in a cottage at Wroxham and am planning on taking my sailing dinghy with me.

Can anyone tell me how far it is from Wroxham (by the bridge) to Wroxham Broad, is it rowing distance?

Also is there a slipway at Wroxham that I'd be able to use to launch a 12 foot dinghy?

It's about a mile from the bridge to the broad.

There is a public slipway on the broad from the car park next door to the Norfolk Broads Sailing club - follow the signs for Wroxham Broad off the Salhouse Road.

The is a slipway on the Barnes Brinkcaft boatyard that is on the Wroxham side of the river.  It used to be Moores boatyard and Peninsula cottages.  Access via The Avenue and Staithway Road

Mal, there is no public slip at Staitheway road.
It is private and there's a chain across the entrance and is signed as such.
The Barnes slip is only accessible through their large shed.
If there's another, I have'nt seen it yet.
Bill.

Will whoever is doing the Rain dance please STOP IT!!!
See, it works!!

Hi Bill,

You moor there so you know better than me, a Wroxham trip is a major outing for us these days.  But I did say it was in BB's (ex Moores yard) and as such would expect to pay. Public didn't appear in that paragraph.

Thank you. A mile doesn't sound too bad. I have an electric trolling motor if the wind gives up or rowing becomes to much.

It's a shame I can't bring my 27ft boat on a trailer too.

The NSBA have a comprehensive list of launching facilities here. There are several boatyards in Hoveton that have slips and contact numbers are on the page.

Hi Mal. Hope you did'nt take my reply the wrong way. Frown  
It came accross a bit matter-of-fact I suppose but was'nt intended that way.
Lots of people come into our carpark thinking it's a
public one(It's for berth holders only) and then walk
accross in front of those houses to the riverside,
which is someones garden, and wonder why they are
told to leave!
Cheers.

Hi Bill,

I'm certainly not upset.   You are the local man and know the latest situation. Smile
