River location: Upstream of Thurne Mouth on the River Thurne
Facilities: Visitor moorings (24hrs Free) on the south bank before the old bridge. Further moorings down river on the south bank. Pub and shops nearby.
One large store (Lathams) dominates the area around the bridge, along with a fish and chip shop, amusements and a river-side pub. The bridge is old and low and hire boats must use the bridge pilot to navigate through the bridge. Larger hire boats may not be able to pass through Potter Heigham Bridge and advice from the bridge pilot must be taken to be sure that a return is possible as the river levels are tidal and can vary with the seasons. A marina and boatyard here has a large fleet of hire boats and day trip boats are available near the bridge on both sides of the river. A bypass across a newer and wider bgridge now keeps the main flow of traffic out of the village. Pleasant walks can be found along the banks and there is much riverside property stretching along both sides of the River Thurne. Fishing bait and tackle from Latham's.
