Hello all!
Due to collect our boat on Friday afternoon from maffett  Cruisers at Chedgrave and are thinking that after our little trail lesson etc we're not going to get very far before we need to moor up as we're meeting friends on the Saturday morning we are thinking Reedham looks like a great place for our first night and for our guests to park easily too, I'm assuming this is Reedham Quay?? I
Also on a general note what are the rough charges for moorings etc, don't think we need a hook up although I do need to clarify that with them later today.
TIA for all advice

Hello,
Easy parking for your friends however mooring can be a challenge especially if its the first time, might be better for you to turn left onto the Yare and head towards Buckenham or you could probably make Bramerton with the daylight available where I believe there is parking for your guests

The place I'm referring to is by The Lord Nelson Pub, maybe it's not Reedham Quay?

Make sure your guests know which Reedham you're going to be at. There's Reedham Ferry (nice pub, with car park, but I don't know if they'd let you leave a car there for the day) and Reedham Quay. Reedham Quay has a ranger on duty during the day, to help you moor.

Mooring charges - if you stay at either of the yacht stations (Oulton Broad and Beccles) the charge varies from (I think) £8.50 to £12, depending on whether it's side-on or stern-on, and whether you plug in.

Waveney River Centre, £10 stern-on, £14 side-on.

Most other places, if there is a charge, it's usually about £5 - £10. Pubs usually give a refund against a main meal. BUT there are plenty of Broads Authority 24 hr moorings, which are free.

Edited to add - yes, the Lord Nelson is at Reedham Quay.

Hi TheDeVilles,

Mooring at Reedham quay is free but I think The Lord Nelson is closed for a major refurb.  Someone else may have an update.

There is a pub The Ship by Reedham Bridge and as stated a little further away is The Reedham Ferry inn by the chain ferry.

Have a great one  Cheers

Kind Regards
Alan...

Dear Devilles You may not be able to moor at Reedham quay it can fill up quite quickly  also not many car parking places An alternative would be at the Reedcutters at cantly lots of mooring and parking at the pub no charge for mooring there's 24hr mooring and pub moorings it will be easier to moor there, the tide can be strong at Reedham at times but there is a very helpful attendant to help moor up until approx 6pm hope this is helpful. John

Dear Devilles One other thing you may have overlooked is how your guests will drive to you there is only three ways to cross the Yare that's Norwich, reedham ferry or St Olives if you want an alternative a little bit further up river, there's the Bouchant Arms at Buckingham which is on the same side of river as Loddon lot,s of mooring and plenty of parking John

If it is anywhere near as busy as last weekend you will indeed struggle at Reedham, it was absolutely full and in many psrts double moored, there were even boats trying to moor on Sandersons moorings but the Rangers moved them along, couple that with the fact that as others have said, moring at Reedham can be quite challenging and The Lord Nelson is xclosed I would think of somewhere else. Cantley was also very full, if you want a sure fire place to moor I would pick Fleet Dyke which joins The Yare to Rockland, it is a formal mooring but not a B.A. 24 hour one so there are no mooring posts and you will need to use your Rhond Anchors. It is about 15 mins steady walk to either The New Inn at Rockland Staithe or the Beuchamp Arms on the Yare, just remember to take a torch.
My other suggestion would be to stay in the Yard Saturday night.
