That was dredged about 15 years ago. I have been up there through the undergrowth a number if times on my canoe. It was very shallow and at times would bottom out. Wild life was great an could get onto the bank and walk ashore. I do have some videos I took from the canoe on YouTube somewhere.
I cruise on THE NORFOLK BROAD as I can not cruise on something that is NOT.
Hylander, if you look at the Google Earth image I posted you'll see a motor cruiser underway, heading towards the Broad. Just above and to the left of the cruiser, there are two dark lines heading into the reedbeds. I think the lower of those two lines is the dyke that's being dredged.
ncsl, thank you for the link to the video. It just goes to show how easy it is to open up these dykes. It's a pity the Broads No-Authority don't regard Crome's Dyke as being important enough to keep open!

Part of the old river Bure loop was up-until the 1980's still accessible from fleet dyke. We used to sail it with a small dingy from fleet dyke back round to the Bure and then haul the boat over the bank near Ant mouth. Parts of the Broads like this are exciting simply because of their secret nature. Where you draw the line between extensive dredging or losing such features as they become silted up and lost to scrub is a difficult one.
