Spotted this 1970's postcard for sale on ebay. It's labelled as St Olaves, but I can't place the location at all & wondered if somebody could help me out. Where is this dyke in relation to the bridge/ Castle Craft, the old Alpha base/ any other modern landmark?

Hello Simon.Looks like Toby Moorings which was a hire base and chalet site between The Bell and the New Cut. They hired there not so luxury craft through Broads Holidays, the smallest of the agents.

I think Fred could be right, unfortunately the definitive feature is missing (out of shot to the left I think) which was a c8ft high model of a toby jug! - very scenic

Could add to the quiz what is the boat furthest left? I think I know, but am not absolutely certain - anyone got any ideas?
