just thought I would share images of this old map I have borrowed from an old boy from Doncaster who used to go on holidays to the broads many moons ago.

it must have been navigable to Bungay at the time of print as there is a walking time from yacht to post office and telegraphic centre (telephone I think?) of 10 mins.

These old maps are always interesting.

I notice, though, that the Broads seems to have shrunk since then. In pic #2, it mentions 200 miles of inland rivers, which appear to have reached as far as Cromer.

We've only got 125 miles of 'em  now  Frown

The British railway posters say 200 miles too.

"it must have been navigable to Bungay at the time of print..."

Prior to the closure of Geldeston Lock in 1934, wherries used to go as far as Bungay. There's no reason to suppose that holiday cruisers didn't use the lock, as well.

Does anyone have any information as to whether that was the case, or not?
