Looks like a fantastic way to while away a day on the broads. Maybe with a pint or two of Woods Wherry.

Film will capture life on the Wherries

Wherry boats used to be a familiar sight sailing along Norfolk's rivers and canals 100 years ago, and last week a film crew boarded one of the vessels as it arrived in Norwich for a public open day.

Students from The University of East Anglia filmed the iconic wherry ALBION as it travelled from Frostbite Sailing Club in Thorpe to moor at the Broads Authority Yacht Station at Riverside (7/23) to give visitors the chance to look around the 115 year-old vessel.

The short documentary film will feature the wherry boats and the people who lived on them,focussing on Jayne Tracy a member of the Norfolk Wherry Trust who was born and brought up on the wherry BRAMBLE which was based at Beccles.

Currently there are eight surviving Wherries which are either privately owned or used for private hire,but during it's heyday the boat was the main form of transport ,ferrying everything from bricks to lime and brick kilns and fertiliser across the country. Current skipper of The ALBION, Henry Gowman said that the short film would capture the historic importance of the Wherry.

 The key to Nelsons victories always lay in his meticulous planning and the Battle of Copenghagen was no exception as he used his fleet to first destroy the Danish floating defences so that his bomb vessels could be brought up to bombard the city itself. The Danes eventually capitulated, but they had fought hard and over 2,000 men had died on both sides before the end of the battle. In this view, HMS Elephant, carrying the flag of Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, dominates the scene as the battle gathers intensity. British ships depicted, left to right, are the Glatton (54), Elephant (74), Ganges (74) and Monarch (74)

 England 1 Germany 0, Euro 2000.  On the 17th of June 2000 England once again faced their old nemesis Germany in a Group A qualifying match at Euro 2000.  England entered the game knowing that they had not defeated Germany in a competitive match since the famous World Cup victory in 1966.  Germany made four changes to the side that had drawn with Romania including the introduction of midfielder Sebastian Deisler, whilst England had been forced to replace Tony Adams and Steve McManaman with Martin Keown and Dennis Wise due to injury.  As expected the game started at a frenetic pace and Jancker made things difficult for England's central defenders early on with his height and strength.  England appeared to be lacking cohesion and allowed Germany to take control of the game.  Deisler brought the German crowd to their feet with a clever run down the right hand side and minutes later Hamaan had their first strike on goal which was hit directly at David Seaman.  England were looking for a flash of inspiration and it was very nearly delivered as Michael Owen managed to meet Phil Neville's cross with his head but only managed to direct the ball on to the post.  Paul Scholes in typical fashion drove a ferocious volley, which was tipped just over the bar, and suddenly it appeared that England were beginning to find some weaknesses in certain areas of the German side.  At the interval little separated the two sides however, England started the second half with a steely determination.  After just seven minutes David Beckham earned his side a free kick in a very dangerous position on the England right.  With good movement from the forwards in the German area Beckham swung a speculative cross into the six yard box.  Owen, beaten by the pace, failed to connect but man of the match Alan Shearer anticipated the kind bounce and without hesitation headed the ball back across Kahn and into the right hand side of the German goal.  The England captain had broken the deadlock and instilled in his side the belief that they could finally defeat their oldest rivals.  Germany threw everything they had at England but Keegan's team were equal to the task in every area of the pitch.  As the final whistle blew a huge roar erupted from the England supporters as Alan Shearer's goal had ended over thirty years of frustration and sealed his place in the history books as one of England's greatest ever strikers.
