South Walsham

South Walsham

South Walsham is quite a large village close to Ranworth and it is about a mile from South Walsham Broad, which is accessed from the River Bure via Fleet Dyke. There are a number of 24 hour free moorings and once the Broad is reached you can see that it is cut into two. One half is privately owned and mudweight anchoring is available on the other half with some moorings on the public quay. A path leads around the Broad and along the bank of Fleet Dike, eventually taking you to the River Bure and you can continue walking in a 6 mile loop, returning via Upton. The village itself boasts two pubs, two churches and a post office and good transport links to the City of Norwich
