Thanks for all the replies and help folk.
I think from the consensus of your opinions that I may just leave it at Potter Heigham and get a taxi up to the pub. (It shouldn't be a problem getting back as the relatives are staying in Yarmouth and I'm sure they can squeeze us in for the return journey...LOL)
At least it gives me a head start on the cruise down to and through Breydon

We've changed our plans and are not even going to try to get through Potter Heigham bridge, as was suggested we're mooring at Herbert Woods and getting a taxi up to Hickling
As for the day............... We're getting the bus into Great Yarmouth !
Something different...LOL

Coach to Yarmouth, along the dreaded Acle Straight, most boring road in Norfolk! Plus you'll not be afloat when the sun will be shining and the water glittering. A stop for a pint or two at Stokesby, just think what you'll be missing  Playful Wink

I'm glad you're not doing my navigating Jenny. (I may need to stand with my hands behind my back, head bent in shame, as I trace an imaginary line in the sand with my big toe!) But I think the bus goes via Ormesby and Caistor, thus missing the Acle Road.... Wink

PS I'm still doing the long run on the Thursday, I just get an hour and a half head start. Thus making time for a beer at Stokesby!!.....LOL

PPS I'm having a whole 24hrs there(Stokesby) on the way back up, me fishing the Mill Road Fishery the wife and kids are off to Thrigby Hall zoo.

I know it sounds like I'm doing a lot of fishing , but in our fortnight I'm only going 4 times , ..... honest............   Playful Wink

Thrigby Hall Zoo is a great location, warrants at least one visit a year from my wife and I. The tiger compound is impressive.

That back-double route is a slower but very pleasant ride, am sure that you will enjoy it. Ideal for us oldies with bus passes.
