Pic of front cover of Brooms '83 hire brochure.
Think I can see 4 Admirals; one on the fuel stage and three in a row next to the less successful Sealord that they built to replace the Admirals.
I counted 50+ hire boats including possibly a dozen woodies going by the colour of the Trakmark? on the boats' roofs.
The house next to the railway (top, left of centre) has gone as has the riverside stores (centre, left of picture). No sign of the present office block so where were their offices in '83?
The crossing into the boatyard to the left of the platform seems to have been in use as it appears to have gates but it's not in use now.
We hired Admiral Seven for a fortnight in August 82; it was moored where Sealord is on the pic. We parked the car (an Austin Princess) undercover in one of the two boatsheds (top left).
I can remember Mr and Mrs Broom walking about organising things with walkie-talkies.
Tides were too high to get under Wroxham bridge so we moored at Lloynes and took the train to Norwich for a day.

Thanks Bill, The waterside shop is still there and just across the dyke from it looks like Moonlight Shadow on its home mooring.

The major change is the demolition of the chandelery and the new dock that has been dug there.
