A Month on the Norfolk Broads

by Walter Rye

Back in the late 1880s, Walter Rye and a number of friends accompanied by an American couple (who were researching the history of their Norfolk ancestry), took a holiday on the Norfolk Broads and enjoyed a leisurely tour around the waterways of this unique part of Eastern England.This book documents some of the highlights of their trip on board the wherry Zöe and the hybrid wherry/cutter Lotus, as they sailed and explored many places of interest of the region. Although born in London, Walter Rye's family came from Norfolk, a county that he moved back to early in his life. He had a lifelong interest in the Broads region and was an acknowledged expert antiquarian in all aspects of Norfolk history.
