There have been one or two comments made lately about mooring charges, for example, people being approached to mudweight at Salhouse Broad(?), and one or two Marinas being viewed as expensive. With all of this in mind it would very much be appreciated by myself and quite possibly other newbies, for some guidance on the subject, such as where you may be expected to be charged a fee, and indeed what is percieved as a fair price? Are tickets/receipts issued to ensure you are paying the legitimate site owner, and not some cowboy looking to fleece a few tourists?

Wherever you are. Dave...always ask for a VAT receipt.
Any cowboy will ride off into the sunset!
Actually, at the legitimate places they'll usually give you a receipt anyway without needing to ask.

According to earlier posts from people actually connected with Salhouse, there is currently no charge for mudweight mooring.

Charges are in place at :-

Wroxham Broad
Horning Swan
Horning New Inn (redeemable against food and drink)
Horning Ferry
Ludham Bridge (Southside only - Northside free)
Thurne Dyke (left side on way in belongs to pub (The Lion), right side belongs to farmer)
Womack Staithe
Acle Bridge
Great Yarmouth
Burgh St Peter (River Waveney Centre) (partially redeemable against food or swimming pool usage)
Oulton Broad
Beccles Yacht Station
Norwich Yacht Station (dodgy place to moor at the moment)

There's bound to be others but I can't remember them all!

Prices range from around £3 to £10 a night. Yarmouth is usually one of the most expensive perversely enough...not a pretty mooring to say the least! Massive tidal rise and fall too!

There are loads of free official mooring spaces too at which you can stay for 24 hours if you wish. Failing that, just find a safe place at the riverbank and enjoy the peace and tranquility. Watch out for red poles sticking out of the water though...these signify that there is an underwater obstruction and mooring there should be avoided.

Hope this helps...some of the other members will no doubt know more than me...

All the best,


John

Excellent list.
I do wish that these things could be preserved as a permanent kept-up-to-date reference. Maybe there's a space for things like this in the guide.

I'm amused.. is there a different charge, depending on the side of Thurne Dyke that one moors?

Think the Thurne Dyke charge is the same both sides as far as I can remember, PL...same deal too...free up to 16:30 hrs after which the charge is levied...
