Hi Steve, thanks for that but you could have saved yourself the trouble, if you click on the tide times link at the bottom of the page ou will find the sunrise/sunset times as well.

Steve Hi,

Assuming you are remaining on the Northern Broads and not going through Yarmouth to the Southern Broads I don't think you will have to worry too much about bridge clearances.
Apart from Potter Heigham I believe Glimmering Light with 6ft 9ins air draft/ required bridge clearance will go under all the other Northern Broad bridges even at average high water providing the canopy and windscreen are down. Smile

Please note that you must use the bridge pilot to go through both Potter Heigham and Wroxham bridges.

Kind Regards
Alan...

Steve,

If you are hoping to get through the bridge I'd suggest ringing  the day before or on the morning to the Pilots Office at Potter Heigham, Tel 07990 686097 or 01692 670460 between 8.30 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.

With low water being at 07:51 and 20:09 on May 4 it doesn’t look very promising.  

You also need sufficient clearance for your return journey so ask the pilot for advice.

Don't be too disappointed if you can't get through Potter there are plenty of other nice places to go.

Although the boatyard may state 4 o clock take over time I find that often the boat is ready earlier so normally arrive a couple of hours early.

Have a great one. Cheers

Kind Regards
Alan...

To be honest I would work on the basis that you cannot get through - then if you can it will be a nice surprise.

Generally speaking although it may be theoretically possible, in practice it is becoming quite rare that the average hire boat, even at 6'9" can get through.

I make Marshman right.

It is rare that I have any plan to go through Potter Heigham bridge but on the few occasions that I had hoped to it has not been possible.

Here is a link to a video of possibly the last time I did manage to go through.  I believe it was filmed in the late 1970's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eP4a1QHlzw
In much earlier years I can remember the Pilots being very busy taking craft through the bridge.
Not now Frown

Kind Regards
