Hi There are Broads Information Centres at Potter Heigham Staithe, Ranworth Staithe, Beccles Staithe and Hoveton (Wroxham) Station Road and hopefully they would be able to advise on current situation. Speak to a River Ranger otherwise.
If you are a dog owner they should not be allowed to swim in or drink the river water.
Come to Norfolk and have a great holiday.
I expect it will all go back to normal when the weather changes but it looks like it's going to be another lovely weekend.
