TG3304 : The south-eastern edge of Rockland Broad

taken 8 years ago, near to Rockland st Mary, Norfolk, Great Britain

The south-eastern edge of Rockland Broad
The south-eastern edge of Rockland Broad
At this time of year the water table in the marshes is high and the water of the Broad reaches the footpath which skirts it, held back by a concrete wall.

The Broad covers an area of 50 acres and is completely surrounded by marshland and tall reed beds. Two dykes link it to the River Yare and there is a channel linking to Wheatfen Broad. A footpath - the first kilometre of it is wheelchair-accessible - leads to a viewing point to a bird hide. Some parts of Rockland Broad are badly silted and in the western part of it, known as The Slaughters, lie 13 Norfolk wherry wrecks.
