Anyone been up here recently?

Is it still possible to motor upto Honing Common and to Dilham Staithe. It has been suggested to me recently that the reiver upto Honing is no longer passable?

Thanks

Paul

No problem last time I was there. The canal is a bit tight for a big boat, but the rest is OK.
Take a canoe from the hire place at wayford Bridge and go up the North Walsham and Dilham Canal. Really fantastic. The walks here are good too.

The river banks have now been cleared and the width is MUCH BETTER - but watch out for roots at the bank edges.
If you can get under the bridge then it will be worth while cruising up there.

Only ever been up to Dilham once when I was a child. It scared my parents to death & I've never had the courage to try it! This year's hire is 44ft by 12ft 4 - would Dilham be pushing it a bit?

Last year ( and before the banks were cleared) the Pink Champange at 45 ft. x 12 ft. 6 in was going up there.
Should be better this year as the river certainly look much wider into Dilham.
If you get stuck then "don't call me".  No you should be OK. Smile

I'd rowed towards Honing some years back and it was very narrow and overgrown, but good in a dinghy, but we got scared off because it sounds like your on a rifle range! and you think your going to get hit.

This year during April we rowed up again. Much clearer and wider, but we didn't go the hole length so who knows what lies at the end.

When I move my yacht up to Norfolk in June one of my plans is to take our little dinghy with outboard up there and see whats there, it's bothered me for about 11 years since we first visited the area.

Can anyone clarify for me which channel is which? As you come under the Wayford bridge heading upstream, the river forks, which one is to the left and which to the right? I have been up the right one in my canoe with my g/f about 3 years ago, and it gets really shallow part way up and our 3 or 4 inch draught was scraping on the river bed in places. It ends with lock gates which aren't working!

That is unless they have sorted them out and re-built them so that they are working again like was proposed ages ago!

Alan.

Hi Alan,
If you click http://www.shorebase.co.uk/broads/broadsintro.asp then click the appropriate map section at the top left of the page, you'll see the fork in question.

I haven't so far managed to get up there myself, but if any forum members have any photos taken in the narrower bits (by canoe or dinghy I guess), I'd be happy to publish them on that 'virtual tour' map. All credit would be given to the photographer, with their ©  etc.   Smile

Dilham is to the left, right is the old canal

We went to Dilham last year no problem,our draft is 3ft 6in, air draft 7ft. Can get a bit close if you meet another boat coming the opposite way just before Dilham but it's only a short stretch so best to wait if you see one coming
