Herbert Woods' boatyard started in 1929. Geldeston Lock closed in 1934, so I reckon your map is from that era. (there were plenty of clues Wink  )

Pally has picked up the navigation from Geldeston to Bungay, which closed in 1934. (Navigation rights formally removed). But that is only about 5 miles. Then there's the North Walsham and Dilham Canal, which wsa last used commercially in 1934, but the navigation was not formally closed. That adds about 9 miles. And there's the River Bure from Coltishall to Aylesham, around 12 miles. But that still leaves a lot more to get to 200!

Looking at the distances on the Inland Waterways Association page for the Broads gives a currently navigable length of 110.7 miles. Adding in the Upper Bure, upper Waveney and North Walsham & Dilham Canal gives another 21.9 giving a total of 132.8 back when they were all navigable. In the case of the upper Bure it was not navigable at the time of the Jarrolds map, leaving 123.8. 200 sounds like a lot of marketing hype!

Has anyone worked out how to get to Cromer by boat, without going out to sea?

But don't you just love the phone numbers though? Herbert Woods, No.8. Roy's, No.99. Probably a Doll's Eye manual switchboard. Great fun.

With a small dinghy it should be possible to carry it from Waxham Bridge. It's only about a mile! That also remids me that there's about another mile and a half of lost navigation. Waxham New cut used to extend all the way to Lounds Bridge.

As for the telephone numbers it reminds me of the days at school when the main school telephone number was Seaton 8.

How do you work that out? Or do you mean launching from Sea Palling?

yes, I was thinking you would sail from Sea Palling. Not that I would do it. (The overland bit that is. Sailing a dinghy from Sea Palling to Cromer would be very do-able in the right conditions.
