Hi All,

Planning our itinerary for our Broads holiday next month.
Is Burgh Castle mooring still available for hire boats ?

Thanks
Davey.

The BA no longer maintain the moorings at Burgh Castle. There are still moorings available but I believe they are owned/leased by the marina and pub there. Not sure if they are specifically for use of pub patrons though, there have been differing stories. If the moorings themselves haven’t been maintained since BA gave them up, they may well be in poor repair. Sorry to have rather negative news there.

If you are referring to the Burgh Castle moorings,  they are no longer there.    They had fell into disrepair and the electric post was taken away and the moorings are no longer maintained by the BA.   There are however moorings over by the Pub and Windmill opposite.   Some are BA and some are not.   You could always moor at Polkey's Mill as these are lovely safe moorings,  even in very high water the posts are there to stop any problems with overtopping.     Be careful to tie up to the posts on the path and not to the overtopping posts.  I have seen people moor with their ropes on these posts and for them to slip down and when the boat goes down on the tide the rope gets tighter and tighter and no matter what you will not get it out again.  Cutting it is the only option.   That is the extreme but if you are careful these are one of my favourite moorings on the Broads.   Lovely bird life at low water.

I am surprised to read this as had read that these mooring were no longer.     Are we talking near to the boat yard moorings?      If they are still able to be used why were we advised not to use them.

Have just looked at the BA list of moorings and Burgh Castle is not there.       Good to know they are there at the moment.

It is slightly confusing, as you head downstream, the first moorings that used to be BA are those that I and ADI were referring to, further on towards Goodchilds and the marina, those are dilapidated and unused.

I hope that helps.
