“Coldham Hall. – A favourite fishing hostelry on the River Yare, about nine miles from Norwich by water. The nearest station is Buckenham, about eight miles from the same city. This prettily-situated Inn has good accommodation at all times for visitors and experience teaches that not only can ample refreshment be obtained here but also ample sport, as many of the brethren of the rod can testify. The river is deep and broad and is noted for its large bream and roach. ‘Pegged down’ matches are sometimes held hereabouts, and at weighing-in time good takes are often recorded. Brundall is the nearest station, half-a-mile away on the North bank of the Yare.”

Letterpress description by Ernest R. Suffling accompanying Plate XXV from ‘Sun Pictures of the Norfolk Broads’.
