Hi

As some of you know i look after Ludham Bridge Boatyard, and i'm just
having some 'fun' trying to get the authorities longterm support, in fact
they don't seem to want to help small boatyards in general.

To be honest I've now become very interested to see why the
authorities don't put much effort in helping or supporting small
boatyards. Basically I think they need to try & help them survive
longterm, if not where do boats go for diesel, pump outs & services
etc.

So I want to look at the 'history' of small boatyards, and I just need a
few old photos of the different small boatyards throughout the Broads.  

Recently a customer said they could remember visiting Ludham Bridge
Boatyard in 1948 and buying some petrol which was served from a
'wind up' type pump on the quay heading, so any photos of this age
would be great to see.

If anyone have any in there holiday snaps please could you email me?

Thank you & kind regards


Jason

Sigh - guilty of not getting my finger out again!!

I still have not found time to sort out my thousands of old slide photo's, I really must get on to it.

Here you go Jason
Chumley & Hawke at Horning.
Used to be where those rather unprepossessing chalet house thingies are now.

Not really small but H.C.Banham's front in Horning 1962. Now of course houses.

Two things that would appear to be lost to the Broads. Cassandra and Anchor Craft.
Guess which one I was actually taking a picture of ?
