“Fritton Lake. – Known as the most beautiful of the Broads. It is land-locked, and can only be reached by road. The nearest station is St. Olaves, from which it is a pretty walk of 20 minutes to Fritton Hall, at which boats and refreshment may be obtained. The lake is very large, being with ‘mill-waters’ nearly three miles in length. It is shut in nearly all round by trees, many of them very old, which throw their gnarled roots in fantastic shapes into the water, looking like huge hydras in the dim light caused by the shadows falling from the overhanging branches, which hang in places quite into the water.”

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