About the day
Leaving our base we head downstream, following the River Bure past Wroxham's waterside houses, Horning's bustling riverside, and plenty of peaceful water between. The journey continues up the River Ant, where you'll get to see just how we get a wherry under Ludham Bridge and on to How Hill. Approaching from the south you will have a wonderful view of How Hill House, designed by Edward Boardman for his family. Having disembarked at How Hill you may wish to explore How Hill Nature Reserve - an area dedicated to the conservation of Broads habitats and known for swallowtail butterflies.
This sailing will be aboard Norada. Named after a famous racing yacht, Norada was built by Ernest Collins in 1912 with a more slender hull compared to previous wherries. She is the only one of our wherries with a boom.
Please park in the car park at How Hill, Ludham, NR29 5PG, The minibus will pick passengers up at 9.25 am and take to the wherry base in Wroxham ready to sail at 10.00. We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our arrival and any interim stops may not always be as planned.
