Situated on the banks of the river Ant. How hill is an imposing house belonging to the Nature trust. The river quay is open to the public for mooring, so we stayed the night in this idyllic setting.
As I stepped off the boat onto the quay. This imposing thatched house caught my eye. Situated on the hillside in the centre of the "How Hill nature trust", on the river Ant. Norfolk Broads.
One of the lovely features of this location is the well maintained Thatched' boathouse giving endless photographic possibilities. Here are a few I took in the evening light.
Situated amongst the trees. A lovely cottage-museum called "Toad Hole Cottage".
A common, but delightful sight on the Norfolk Broads are the numerous windmills. These were used, in the days before electric, to pump the water off the land and into the river's.
Our first evening on the broads comes to an end, and as the evening twilight approaches, I took this shot of the river and small boats. Time to turn in for the night....
