“South Walsham Broad. – Is particularly picturesque. It is formed of two sheets of water joined together by a narrow channel; the shape greatly resembling an hour glass. The area is about 60 acres. This Broad lies a mile up a dyke, which runs out of the Bure almost opposite St. Benet’s Abbey. It is frequently missed by yachting parties, but should not be, as it is well worth a visit. The water in the dyke is deep enough for any kind of river craft. When at South Walsham, the visitor should see the two churches in one churchyard, they stand about half-a-mile from the staithe.”
