I am considering Silver Haze for a week in the Spring and just wanted to find out about the bridges.
Many wondering about Ludham and Carrow Road. I accept that Wroxham, Beccles and Potter are beyond expectations.
Any other comments regarding the boat will also be welcomed.

Hi Allan,

I have hired Brinks Jazz in the past - the same boat type - and found no problems getting under Ludham Bridge. Richardsons have Astral Gem, which is again, the same type, housed above Ludham Bridge in Stalham so I cannot forsee any problems or it would be moved to Horning. As for Carrow Bridge, sorry cannot help.

Regards
David

In fact Trowse Bridge comes before Carrow Bridge and is lower - even that will not be a problem for you. There is also a rise and fall of a foot or more making the Norwich bridges pretty easy for most Broadland boats!

It's been a few years since we were last on The Broads and I confused the bridge names. Is an overnight at Norwich YS still have any issues?

If you are going to have any trouble it would likely be limited to either Friday or Saturday night when the area is busier but despite reports of issues, I think I would have a greater issue with road running alongside the YS!!! I don't think I could put up with that, although to be fair we are talking about Norwich!!!

An alternative or two to consider  - if you just want to visit Norwich. You could moor at Commissioners Cut which is in Thorpe, walk over the railway line nearby and up to the road - there are lots of buses into the City from there. Or if you want a real adventure moor at Cantley, NOT Reedham, and catch a train in - indeed you could so easily do that from Silverlines Base as well.

The choice will be yours but Norwich IMHO is a nice City and well worth a visit - but I am biased a bit!

Just have to add that I agree wholeheartedly with MM - Norwich is a lovely city and well worth a visit. Have done this twice now using the excellent bus services and will do so again.

Have a great holiday.

I have travelled into Norwich by bus from Loddon and thoroughly enjoyed the bus ride. A city that is always worth visiting imo. Have stayed in the YS many times with no issue but always avoided a Friday or Saturday night. The road noise doesn’t seem to bother me strangely although I live in a rural area.
