January 2011 - Website visitor Jackie sent me a picture of Finewind A282 from an album bought at auction.
Description: Hirers of traditional wooden motor cruisers, sailing yachts and bungalows on the Norfolk Broads. A while ago I came across a model of a Norfolk Broads Yacht, a centreboard full keel yacht, but I don't think I've seen any pictures or designs of a real one - anyone know much about this type?
The boats in the book of 1880 were also long keeled, but the deck layouts were different, and that looks as though it is a model of a much larger boat.
The later Broads hire yachts are exactly as John describes with a fin keel and separate shallow rudder. Broads are roughly all the same depth and don't dry, so centreboards generally limited to half-decker dayboats. This is THE Worlds Largest Forum devoted to the Norfolk Broads, here you can discuss issues about the Norfolk Broads. Photos of traditional sailing craft of the Norfolk Broads, including everyone’s favourite, the 19th century Broads sailing cruiser Zoe, a Royal Navy Sailing Association dinghy, the Norfolk wherry Albion, and a charmingly dilapidated boat shed. We recently rather enjoyed the book The Norfolk Broads: The Golden Years, which we bought in Norfolk earlier this year.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques. Martham, a large village with a population of over 3000, is conveniently located mid-way between the Norfolk Broads and the North Sea.
We start our tour of Martham by the village pond, which is surrounded by grass and loads of ducks! There are two village pubs, the Victoria Inn and the Kings Arms -both very close to each other.
The church is in a lovely setting, with large church grounds and some thatched cottages in the road nearby. From the church, if you head down Staithe Road, you come to a dyke that leads to the River Thurne.
At the end of the dyke you will find a run down boat yard and one of the few remaining vehicle ferries on the Norfolk Broads. Just behind the boatyard is a path that leads along Martham Riverbank, which gives access to the row of riverside bungalows, and it also makes a lovely walk.
Mid-way along the path is Martham Mill, the remnants of an old windmill, now a private residence. Eventually we come to the boat sheds of Martham Boats, who hire out traditional timber Broads cruisers and yachts, including half-deckers.
West Somerton is a lovely small village, with a village green and a dyke leading to the main river.The green has some lovely cottages grouped around it and a footpath leads along the bank of the dyke, giving access to the boats moored further up and is a great quiet spot for a little fishing or to launch a canoe. Nearby, is one of the first windfarms in the UK at Blood Hill, mid way between West Somerton and Winterton on Sea.
Martham and West Somerton are contrasting villages - one has plenty going on and the other is remote and isolated, but both are beautiful in their own way.

Too many headsails - short tacking in a river that is about twice as wide as your boat is long is impossible with too much headsail.
It’s a compendium of photos and descriptions by the charming Broads writer and keen sailor Philippa Miller, and include many shots of familiar scenes from the area going back to early in the 20th century.

The east window of the chancel is by Hardman of Birmingham and was put in when the chancel was rebuilt in 1856-7 as a memorial to the Revd.
Marys at West Somerton is one of the best in Norfolk, partly due to its location, perched on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside and views to the coast at Winterton. The site currently has 10 wind turbines, generating approximately 2.25 megawatts of electricity, enough for around 1,400 homes. People have worshipped here for over 900 years and the building contains craftsmanship from various dates and periods. Good luck with the commissioning Griff and hope to see you and the team at Beccles next year!
