Salhouse Great Broad
Photographer: Payne Jennings, John (1843-1926)
Medium: Photographic print
“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.”
