spring on the riverside

Welcome, Ahoy

Heather is a traditional yet quirky houseboat, laying on the Broads Waterways of Norfolk and Suffolk. Maintained by two 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.

Marine litter picking


Lumps of wood, bottles and a wide range of litter regularly turn up on the high tide, occurring twice a day. For a number of reasons, litter soon collects and finds its way into the river and eventually the open sea. We endevour to retrieve litter on the water, where it is safe to do so. It is always advisable to wear gloves and wash your hands with disinfectant thoroughly afterwards.

Floating litter is especially dangerous, as it can harm wildlife and cause damage to hulls of craft. Stuck in a semi private backwater, away from the official navigation, plastic packaging, complete with contents (pictured) looks very unsightly.
