Book Description

contains all the information required when sailing or cruising on the Broads - tide tables, moorings, etc. The 200 miles of navigable waterways known as the Rivers and Broads of Norfolk and Suffolk are unique in the British Isles for their varied scenery, sailing and cruising and outdoor sports, historical and antiquarian interest, coarse fishing, and the profusion of other wild life. This map has been specially drawn to supply all the information necessary for the full enjoyment of a holiday in Broadland. The map is divided into four sections, the key to which and to items of topography is to be found in the top left-hand corner. The Bure, with its tributaries the Ant and the Thurne - together with their respective broads - is covered by sections A, B and C, whilst the Yare and the Waveney are dealt with in section D. By matching the coloured lines printed at the edge of the sections, the course of the rivers can easily be traced from section to section. Navigable water is coloured dark blue while light blue denotes private, unnavigable or otherwise inaccessible water. The navigable channels through the Broads are also indicated by dark blue; in crossing these shallow broads, such as Hickling or Breydon Water, it is necessary to keep between the posts marking the channel. Broadland is rich in fine churches, villages and sites of antiquarian interest. These are clearly shown on the map which also indicates Inns, Hotels and Post Offices. The map will also be useful to tourists and ramblers, since it shows so clearly the roads and footpaths of broadland. The fact that a road or footpath exists on the map must, however, not be taken as evidence that a right of way also exists.
