“Salhouse Great Broad. – Is only 'great' by comparison. It is in fact a small Broad, as it can only muster about 35 acres. What it lacks in size it gains in beauty; indeed, many think its natural surroundings gives it a pre-eminence in this respect over the numerous adjoining Broads. Frequently after a summer shower the air is redolent with the perfume of wild flowers, the pale meadowsweet especially being noticeable in this respect. To a botanist, Salhouse and the adjoining Broads must be a veritable treasure-house, to say nothing of the gentle hunter of the butterfly and other winged inhabitants of the air which are so numerous hereabout.”

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