Re: Bridge heights

Hylander, I agree, certainly all the bridges on the northern side have a good few extra contingency inches, but slightly less so in my experience on the southern side where they seem to be more accurate. I've been through Beccles numerous times over the years and I have got a pretty good grasp of th...

Bridge heights

Hi all, does anyone know how often, if at all the bridge clearance boards are calibrated? I’m well aware that there’s usually a few extra inches added on for contingency, which is good especially as some of the boards seem to lean over more each time I pass them.

It really wasn’t loud, we could still hear the birds tweeting and water splashing and I’m sure it wasn’t bothering anyone, from the bank ...

Re: Not Enough Moorings On Norfolk Broads

Well at least you’re okay Luna. For the rest of us though it’s an increasing struggle to moor up in the summer. I see some inconsiderate mooring, which doesn’t help the situation.

Saturday was a bit grim weather wise, and the wind I wasn't expecting :cry: none the less, what a great time to be on board! Here's a couple of my vids, not grea...
