Hi Nige, If you look at a map of the lower Bure you will see that as you go up from Bure Mouth it loops back round until it almost reaches Breydon just upstream of 3 Mile House. This is the Bure Loop. Other reports describe the dredging as being up to 3 Mile House, which is pretty well the same point.

You are not getting this Nige you look at your Hamilton's first and say 'Would I be right in thinking that the Bure loop are the reaches below Three Mile House from how many Km is the silt being removed' at this the beer drinkers sit back stunned thinking "oh core we've got another expert" and buy you a pint when they meet you Smile

There is something that I can't quite get my head round.  Boat wash and fast currents scour the river banks and beds.  So why is it necessary to dredge the lower reaches of both the Yare and the Bure?  Marinas and Broads where there is still water allowing the sediment to settle I understand.  Wouldn't gin palaces at full chat and wake boarding during certain hours be equally effective?  Put them favourably it might even be possible to get them to pay for the privilege.

Bof2, even on the lower Bure there are times when the flow slows down and even momentarily stops - low and high water. That's when the river dumps more of the silt it has in suspension.

Areas where two (or more) flows meet each other and cancel each other out also experience high siltation - such as Bure mouth and Cut mouth on the Yare.

Hi all,
i'm just wondering for those of us in the know if that dredger has found that camera that was thrown in.

All the best Dave & Andrea.
