My understanding is that the moorings on the East Bank (shop side) above the bridge are now being removed.
Edited to add - I think the top end are BA mootings - which are being removed.  Nearer the bridge, where the tap is MAY BE parich staith which will remain.  Others, wiser than me will know the status.

The moorings on the West Bank (Horning Marshes) put in new about 5 years ago, are still in use.

There are also the farm moorings on the West Bank below the bridge.  Fee payable.

Above the bridge, the BA mooring on the water-point side of the Ant has been removed and the bank re-profiled, but the EA mooring (which is where you would moor for water) is still there. Don't forget the Nancy Oldfield Trust boats moor there, so availability has been slightly reduced.

The opposite side of the river (BA Horning Marshes mooring) has been slightly altered, in that the demasting mooring which had been at the top end of the mooring has now been moved down nearer the bridge.

Below the bridge, the Hall Farm moorings have been reduced, as the quay-heading was in a rather dangerous condition. Only some of it has been renewed.

I came through there around 11am last Thursday and the moorings above the bridge were practically full. Plenty of room on the Hall Farm mooring though.

Ss you're getting there on a Saturday, you might like to have a Plan B, even a Plan C, for example meeting at St Benet's Abbey or How Hill, if Ludham is full. Just a thought.

I don't know how busy it will be but The Lion Inn near the Thurne mouth has a lot of moorings.  I also believe they are Stag Party friendly.

I don' know if they take reservations but if you are interested you could try calling them Tel: 01692 670796  Cheers

Kind Regards

Wow sounds like these popular moorings have largely dissappeared from what they were, yet another holiday maker unfriendly move, soon be nowhere to moor unless your there at lunchtime. The broads is Fast losing its appeal, and this means less money coming in to the authority, meaning less investment meaning less holiday makers meaning less investment and so and so on...

If I am a "woody" how come there are no "fibreglassy's" "plasticy's" or "steelies"?

You don't think the National Park re-branding will promote tourism then LOL.

"Wow sounds like these popular moorings have largely dissappeared from what they were, yet another holiday maker unfriendly move..."

Really? Which other 'popular moorings' have disappeared? At Ludham Bridge, the BA put in new moorings on the Horning Marshes side, including a demasting mooring. The removal of the mooring on the other side of the river actually makes it a bit safer to pass through. They also created a demasting mooring downstream of the bridge.

At Thurne Mouth, the mooring was taken back by the landowner, but the BA are making efforts to replace it.

New moorings have been created at Womack Dyke, Dutch Tea Gardens, Polkey's Mill and Hardley Dyke.

The walkway at Paddy's Lane has been taken over by the BA and will be kept open, when it seemed likely to be closed.

Plenty of holiday-maker friendly activity taking place, IMO.
