A warm, friendly Heather welcome

We are delighted to share Heather, an historic boat and home for over a century, laying on the Broadland 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...

Gifts by the River Bure

Browse a personally selected range of items at the shop truck this summer and autumn. Opening most weekends and certain week days, or by arrangement ~ there are collectable picture postcards by Charles Stenner, candle lanterns, life like bouncing toy eggs and hand crafted letter openers made from locally sourced wood.

Fashion accessories include Lucy Walker's luxury Bertie brand bow ties and handkerchiefs, made from Liberty silk. Plus, a collection of jewellery, handy bags, scarves and hats ~ all found on the starboard, right hand side of the truck.

The port side offers a number of playful gifts for pocket money, including wind up power boats, fishing ~ dipping nets, animal toys, Broadland slime barricoes (barrels), twig pencils (for small or large hands), tuneful whistles, games and much more.

By purchasing from the truck you will be helping secure the future of Heather. Launched during the 1900s as a flat decked military lighter in the Netherlands, she was remodelled into a pleasure houseboat by a gentleman artist in 1928. Heather is a UK registered historic small boat number 1440. Our shared ethos in keeping Heather is to endeavour to be ~ fair, individual, friendly and independent.

We welcome your ideas, comments and suggestions. Please find the little book suspended inside the truck body.
