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...

Launch of a glorious season


At Easter, as if by the flick of a switch, the rivers and interconnecting broads come alive with holiday folk. Pleasure boats and associated buildings are spruced up for the season, while on Heather, cleaning and maintenance is on going.


The exhibition and shop truck has been kindly transported from its storage in Catfield to a boat workshop in Wroxham by Robert Paul Esq. Remedial work is now underway on the truck, in preparation for opening, shortly.

Our Trading Post cabin at Chandlers' Yard, Ludham Bridge will transfer to the riverside shop truck, including a scaled down selection of fairly priced books.


The expectation is gathering, and as in the 'Brum' children's stories, the truck does look like it might just set off along the riverside without any further input from us.

As yet the truck is just known as the truck, so any suggestions of a name would provide some interest, although child friendly names are preferable.

We - and this includes the truck itself - hope to see you if you're in the area as the launch is now imminent.

Best wishes,

Andrew, Timothy
