Welcome, Ahoy

Heather is a traditional yet quirky houseboat, laying on the Broads Waterways of Norfolk and Suffolk. Maintained by friends, she has been home to artists, holiday visitors and mariners for generations.

See on board the houseboat, visit the touring shop and relax on the riverside.

Historical Broadland Wherry relics for sale






We are reducing a number of things we no longer have space for, kept at rather rambling stores on board and ashore. Amongst these are a collection of artefacts from the pinnacle era of large working wherry vessels on Broadland rivers (1850 ~ 1950).

The hand made objects range from a large gilt masthead, once on top of a pleasure wherry mast and various humble fastenings from trading and pleasure wherries including: Cornucopia, The Fir, Gleaner, Lady Violet, Dragon, Albion, Fairy Queen, Lord Roberts and White Moth. These items will shortly be offered for sale.
