This may be worth getting a hold of for them wet days on the Broads.
This book is called " Recollections of a Staith Road Lad" by Joe Jermy and produced by Bungay Printers.
It covers stories from about mid 1800's and include,  of The Bungay Steam Boat (Firefly), Bungay Railway Station, Bungay Wherries (Iolanthe - 1892), Bungay Gang Show.

Some lovely pictures too dating back to .

Not too sure where to geta copy but will be worth adding it to your list of "must read" book if your interested in the South Rivers, Maltings, and the Wherry makers.
My wifes mothers inlaws,(Billy Brghton, who built The Waveney Wherry, & The Blanche Wherry) we think, have a mention too.

Hope you can get a copy, if not then let me know and I will ask the person who gave me this one.

Hi Paul
books sounds interesting, do you know if it carries an isbn number or any other reference? The Bungay printers, would that be Clays or Clowes? Tried to source a copy but no luck so far.
cheers

Hi Mat

No ISBN number but I,m sure it is printed by Clays.
Published by Frank Honeywood and printer by Bungay Printers NR35 1AW  if that helps.

It is a paperback but well done and a full 80+ pages too.
I have found it more than interesting as has a lot of history.
One item mentions the building of a wherry and having to drag it through thevillage and lanuch it sideways into the river.

Not to mention the becalmed days spend off the wherries and waiting in the pub for the wind to return !!!!

They were the day!!

Hi Mat and thank you for posting details of the book here.

I had not seen the person who gave me a copy so was unable to give more details.

Sounds like you are enjoying the reading.

It adds a bit more knowledge of the Wherries and the Southen rivers.
