Ludham Bridge c1905

A trading wherry moored at Ludham Bridge c1905. The old arch bridge had long been known as a serious hazard to navigation, restricting the size of vessel which could pass underneath and was often referred to as the “bung hole”. When tides were high, even the trading wherries which regularly made there way up the Ant to Stalham and, at one time, North Walsham would have difficulty passing through.

Thiis card featuring Ludham Village was posted in 1973 but the photograph probably dates from the late 1960s. The Kings Arms pub can be seen on the right - the old post office in the background, and the shop seen on the corner of Yarmouth Road are both now private houses.
