Hi
I am hopefully (weather permitting) taking the Freeman
to Norfolk for a week, this August. Can any of you
locals/regulars fill me in on some info? Although I am
not a braods virgin, this is the first time on my own
boat, and with a child.

Wroxham - Where is there public mooring to access the
town, it all seams a bit private and busy arround the
centre.
Where is best to moor for the train station? Did I
dream of a mooring near a railway bridge.

Wroxham bridge - Pilot or not??? If so, how much.

Where are all the best places to amuse a 5 year old
child?? Play parks etc.  
Are there any swimming baths in walking distance from
a mooring on the Northen Broads???

I figure on doing, Wroxham, Salhouse broad, Ranworth
church & conservation centre, then I am stuck for
ideas......

Thanks
Dean

Don't forget a visit to The Museum of the Broads, Stalham Staithe.  Family ticket £8.50.  Wroxham Barns on the Tunstead road from Wroxham - a taxi drive from Wroxham.

Dean,

Nice choice of colour scheme.

There are free moorings above Wroxham bridge, which will give you access to the town and railway station.
You can also moor above the railway bridge, slightly longer walk to town but closer to railway.

There is the Bure valley steam railway, from Wroxham, if you and he are into trains.

Re swimming Moores used to have a pool I do not know if it is still in use/available. There is a splash type pool at Horning Ferry Marina.

There are swings beside the Lion at Thurne.

I will keep my thinking head on and update if I think of more.


Hugh

Re Pilot - I haven't used the service so far, if I'm not too sure about the height clearance I creep up to the 'hanging dingly dangly bits' to check. The current rains do not appear to have affected things too much yet!!!

Where are you planning to launch from? A friend with a 19' Shrimper has used Moores, Richardsons, and Martham, and now prefers the latter, but of course then you've got the problem with Potter, for safety sake I take my screens off to go under (but then I haven't got original screens).

Do you take a dinghy with you? If so for a bit of adventure go to the end of navigation at Coltishall, row back down river then take the left hand fork (quite overgrown with trees now) row up to the disused mill pond, on the right is a dinghy width stream down to the other fork (and I do mean Down). My kids loved it.
