River location: Close to Malthouse Broad, accessed via Ranworth Dam off the River Bure. Moorings are at the far end of the broad past the entrance to Ranworth Broad (closed to boats) and close to the visitor centre shop.
Facilities: Visitor moorings on Malthouse Broad (24hr Free) with stern on moorings. Fresh water, electric hook ups, rubbish disposal. This is a popular mooring and can get full quickly during the summer months.
At the moorings the visitor centre shop sells provisions, broads memorabelia, toys, fishing gear, sweets, ice creams, maps and papers. Boat trips across to Ranworth Broad can be booked here. On Ranworth Broad (a nature reserve with no access to boats) is the floating Broads Wildlife Centre (see LINKS). This can be accessed via a boardwalk (wheelchair accessible) and the entrance can be found turning right from the moorings along Broad Road. Ranworth Broads is a nature reserve under the management of the Norfolk wildlife Trust. Opposite the moorings is the village pub, The Malsters, and a short walk right along the road is Ranworth Church (St Helens) and it's tower (that can be climbed by appointment for a superb view of the surrounding broads) can be seen whilst cruising around the broads and the River Bure.
The village is a 3 mile walk along Woodbastwick Road, past St Helen's church. The road takes you to Horning Road and the parish church of St Fabian and St Sebastian. Further on is the Fur & Feather Inn.
