Wherry ship graphic and nameWherryman's Way

57 km / 35 miles

Norfolk
A long distance riverside walk which follows the route of the historic Broads trading wherries between Norwich and Great Yarmouth stations, it winds through open marshes, reedbeds, grazing meadows and riverside villages along the banks of the River Yare, such as Cantley, Reedham and Burney Arms, that have linking stations. Waymarkers along the route include stainless steel wherry sails, life-like figures, information panels and audio points. The Broads is Britain’s largest protected wetland and the wherry – a large cargo-carrying barge whose elegant black sails - was a once common sight on these waters. An A3 size leaflet that includes an outline map is available for free download on the website and this also has information on diversions due to flood prevention work.
Recent sighting (7/07/2012) of adders, between Berney Arms to Great Yarmouth, basking in the sun have been reported. Extra care is needed and the advice is not to interfere or disturb them.
