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.

Some Current Half Price Offers

Bismarck, now complete and newly painted in full Baltic camouflage, returns to Hamburg for the last time as the harsh winter of 1940/41 relents and the pride of the German Kriegsmarine prepares for real action.  In the distance, the pre-Dreadnought Schleswig-Holstein awaits her next commission, the old ship alternating between vital ice-breaker and air defence duties at this time.  The Bismarck would in May 1941 put to sea and engage and sink HMS Hood only to be caught by the British battleships Rodney and King George V.  Bismarck was pounded into a floating wreck, finally being sunk by the torpedoes of HMS Dorsetshire.  From her crew of 2300 only 110 would be rescued by HMS Dorsetshire and HMS Maori.
