Last December, there was a report on behalf of the Norwich and District Anglers Association (NDAA) to the Broads Local Access Forum, promoting the opening up of EA-controlled river bank for angling. https://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0032/366854/BASG-Report-Opening-access-to-EA-owned-banks.pdf

I commented about it on this thread http://www.the-norfolk-broads.co.uk/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=33&Topic=43975&srow=12&erow=18

Following up on that, I have just looked at the NDAA web site and it seems the BA 24 hr mooring at St Benet's Abbey is now an NDAA allocated swim, clearly marked with a blue line on the NDAA map of waters https://www.ndaa.org.uk/

Is this a slip of the pen, or Woodbastwick Mk 2?

I think you are probably looking at the existing NDAA day ticket and match stretch at St. Bennetts were the platforms are.

No, definitely the 24 hr mooring section. Look at the map in the link to the NDAA web site and zoom in. You can clearly see the boats moored up.

If you click on the map and read the detail you will read the following: "12 pegs available on this section.  Boats take priority 16th June - 31st October." So effectively from 15th March (start of the closed season) and 15th October, boats have priority.

So if I rock up on 1 November to find a match in progress and I want to moor, what happens then? Apart from the Yacht Stations, I always thought that the 24 hr moorings were 24/7/365.

It looks to me to be a reasonable compromise . The number of boats that actually want to moor there between November and March must be very low.

In busier times they are given priority over anglers so everyone wins a bit and also loses a bit.

I accept that anglers do not directly contribute to the BA budget but I do not begrudge a bit of give and take .

Could be interesting trying to moor when there is a match on!
As for boats taking priority at certain times, the BNA must realise that this does not work and is a cause of confrontation.

I have been speaking to a number of people and have gathered the following information. All I can personally verify is that sections of the capping are in poor or very poor condition and that most of the mooring is closed (see pics, taken this morning).

1. The wooden capping has deteriorated.
2. The majority of the mooring is being closed off for health and safety reasons.
3. There will be spaces left for around half a dozen boats.
4. The closure will be in place for the whole of the forthcoming season.
5. The lease is coming to an end and the Broads No-Authority has failed to secure a new one.
6. The Environment Agency owns the metal piling at the mooring and has said that, unless the landowner takes responsibility for its future maintenance, they will take it out.

I’m very surprised that the BNA have released no information about any of this, particularly the mooring closure.
