HEATHER

A warm, friendly Heather welcome

We are delighted to share Heather, an historic boat, artistic refuge and home for over a century, laying on the ancient Broads Waterways of Norfolk.

It is our aim to preserve the distinctive character of Heather, enabling future generations to enjoy her charms. We welcome you to explore the houseboat and bountiful riverside beyond...

A scarlet coloured hand cart, remodelled from a Royal Mail electrical postal trolley, is a new attraction ~ facility for Heather. Similar in design to shepherds' huts or living vans, it is multi functional and can be transported to different places.


The glass fibre bodied cart was formerly used to move postal bags between railway stations and depots. For 500 years, the Royal Mail has being carrying post; firstly sending messages for Henry VIII and later as a global delivery service for everyone, conveying mail by air, sea and road.
