About the day
Leaving our base, we'll head away from the bustle of Wroxham with a variety of cottages and grand houses on either side. We continue along the River Bure, past Horning's bustling riverside to reach Ant Mouth, where we turn into the more narrow waters of the River Ant. A little under a mile upstream is our destination - the picturesque hamlet of Ludham Bridge - where, having passed through the bridge we moor and disembark.
There are 3 laybys either side of Ludham Bridge, Johnson Street, Ludham. NR29 5NX, Please park in one of them and the minibus will collect passengers at 9.20am from the layby opposite the toilets.
This sailing will be aboard one of our three wherry yachts: Olive, Norada or White Moth. These surviving wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins. They spent over three decades within his hire fleet, followed by a period of mixed fortunes in private ownership after World War II, before they were reunited in 2012 by the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust.
We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our arrival and any interim stops may not always be as planned.
