We travelled the River Ant the following day and enjoyed being back on Barton Broad again. Having trouble with the domestic water pump a phone call to the yard brought about an arrangement to meet at Stalham. With the pump replaced and water topped up at Moonfleet Marine we set off to Dilham.

We were unsure if our boat was too big to get all the way to Dilham.I seem to remember Dilham dyke being non navigable the last time we were there in 1974 but I could be mistaken in this. We decided to chance it and were rewarded by reaching the staithe.

My brother who has been researching our family tree for some years had discovered a lot of connections with Dilham. We walked to the church and found many graves bearing our family name, also variouys mentions of it in the church. Morbid I suppose, but very interesting. We also found more mentions of the name in the local pub where we had a lovely meal that evening.
