“Fishing at Cantley. – Cantley is the Yarmouth anglers’ paradise, and ‘Cantley Red House’ is the shrine which the brethren of the rod make for when they have a few hours to spare. It is only about 10 miles from Yarmouth by rail and 13 by water. In the summer it is a favourite amusement for Yarmouth yachtsmen to race their craft to Cantley, dine there and return across Breydon Water in the gloaming; a very pleasant way of spending a day. Cantley Station is but five minutes’ walk from the river.”

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