I hope we are not repeating a topic, though I couldn't see anything recent, apologies if we are.
We downloaded a tide timetable from Herbert Woods and today received our timetable from Hoseasons/Blakes and their timings seem somewhat different.
We are not going until 31st August but am hoping to get under Ludham Bridge that afternoon (departing from Wroxham).

HW have low tide at Yarmouth YS as 12.50 whereas H/B have it at 13.29. I know I need to add approx 3 hours for Ludham Bridge. Thats a 40 minute difference and could mean I guess the difference between getting under and not.

Also want to go through GY on Tuesday 2nd Sept, times differ again.
HW says 14.50 & H/B say 15.18. Only 28 minutes difference this time.

Which should I believe?
I looked at the timetable also from the Broads Authority for July to compare and that just made us even more confused.

Can somebody put us straight please.

I always use the tide tables on the link at the bottom of this page. They can differ slightly from those published, but I have found then fairly accurate. I looked up the 31st and it shows 12:50.

i always find that link to be the best, and many thanks to paul for allowing mt to link to his fantastic system.

The times are as spot on as they can be consdering all the factors that effect the tides, although i do tend to add another 30 mins to his yarmouth transit time.

You don't say what boat you are hiring, perhaps you could let us know as this will give a better idea about getting under Ludham Bridge.

Though things can change, river levels are lower than normal at the moment - recently there has been between 8ft 3" and 8ft 6" at Ludham Bridge.  However some boats which have a stated 9ft + airdraft I have seen the other side (Stalham side) of Ludham Bridge - one being Belmore which I hired in May and has an apprant 9ft 2" airdraft.  However to see it at How Hill means it would have gone through the bridge with far less than the stated air draft being shown on the height board.

I am not saying take the height board with a pinch of salt, but you can certainly be a little less worried if your boat was 8ft 6" as an example, and it stated at the bridge 8ft 3" then your boat would surly fit under.

For low water calculations I use the www.shorebase.co.uk tide table and find it pretty accurate.

Many thanks for all your feedback, much appreciated.

We are hiring Fair President from NBD in Wroxham, they don't quote
the air draft in their information, but if we recall from renting it a
couple of years ago we believe it to be 8' 9"; but that time we didn't
go up the Ant.

We know timing is tight to get from Wroxham to Ludham Bridge on
that Saturday hence the critical timing of our departure.

Thanks again to all

Various publications do differ slightly.

For highs / Lows and a host of other information whilst afloat on the Broads I use the Broads Authority Tide Tables.  It's a small booklet and only costs a £1.
They run for a whole year 1 Apr 2013 - 31 March 2014.  They also show new moon, full moon first and last quarter along with sunrise/sunset times.

It has distance tables for all the rivers, bridge heights (All of them) contact numbers, etc etc.
We keep a copy onboard and another at home here with me.

I'd never bee without a current copy, you can't go wrong for a £1 either!

Incidentally Low tide is shown for 31 Aug is 1232 BUT that is at Gorleston, you have to add on on hour for yacht station, which makes it 1332.  It is showing Ludham Bridge as low water being 1632.

Hope this helps

Like Griff I use the Broads Authority tide table.

The reason for this is because this table shows the height of the tide at Yarmouth and for us to get under the bridges with a air height of 9ft 8inch with everything taken down, the height of the low tides needs to be .15 of a metre or less. We tend to look for a clearance of 10ft at the bridges or more.

Alan
