Postcards of the Norfolk Broads


Back to Postcards Rollesby Broad c1905

Rollesby Broad c1905. Although now cut off from the main system, but originally connected to the River Bure at Stokesby via Muck Fleet, the Trinity Broads of Rollesby, Ormesby and Filby have long attracted visitors. During the first half of the 20th century, rowing boats could be hired for fishing or pleasure trips. The Broad is now owned by Essex and Suffolk Water and is used by the Rollesby Sailing Club.

Marshman at Rollesby Broad c1908

Another card from the Wrench Series c1905-1910 - I presume that the caption should actually read “Marshman” at Rollesby Broad.
