Wow, it's 60 yrs since I was in Salhouse Broad, what a difference. I used to drive bow onto the bank and throw a weight over the nearest tree bough. Always a problem for the young and old to climb down from the high bow. Now looks very "posh". Is the old wherry still rotting away at the eastern end ?

Apparently it was an old world war 1 ship in a previous life, still there but completely obscured by vegetation now.

On the Salhouse Broad (now privately owned) website there is some further details on it and plans to make it visible again.

Thats brilliant !! Memory can play strange tricks but as soon as I saw the wreck I recognised it. Not a wherry, I can remember doing just the same as those kids on her. Thanks so much for the links. I must dig out my own 8mm cine films I took at that time.
