The Norfolk Broads in winter


 Photographs of the Norfolk Broads – It is such a joy to go out on a ramble and capture the beauty of the Broads with my camera.

Broadland inlet

The Broads are very important for wildlife. Much of the fenland and open water, as well as large areas of grazing marsh, are designated as sites of European Importance for wildlife.

Swansong

The Broads are a network of mostly navigable rivers and lakes in the English counties of Norfolk and Suffolk.

Waveney marshes

The Broads are Britain’s largest protected wetland and are home to a wealth of wildlife,especially birdlife.

The Norfolk Dyke

The late Ted Ellis, a local naturalist, referred to the Broads as “the breathing space for the cure of souls”.

The Waterpump

The river Waveney is a considerable river, and of a deep and full channel, navigable for large barges as high as Beccles; it runs for a course of about fifty miles, between the two counties of Suffolk and Norfolk

  1. I didn’t know about the Broads and enjoyed the information as well as the photos. Good to hear that such an extensive wetland system is preserved and appreciated. Liked the Ted Ellis quote.
