“On Womack Broad. – Womack is so small that it can scarcely be dignified by the name of a Broad, but what there is of it is pretty; the old tower of Ludham Church trying to catch a glimpse of its tall head in the water by peeping over the tree tops, adds to the beauty of the little pool. To reach Womack Pool the yachtsman must keep a bright look out on the left side of Thurne River for Womack Dyke. It has a very narrow opening and may be easily missed. Leave the yacht and entering the dingy, take a pull of three-quarters of a mile, and behold little Womack Pool with its old boat-builder’s yard and reedy nooks – a bijou Broad.”

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