About the neighbourhood
Potter Heigham is one of the major boating centres on the Norfolk Broads, with many boating holidays or day trips starting from here. The medieval bridge gives access to the Upper Thurne, Hickling Broad and Horsey Mere, but only for smaller craft; larger boats, if they can get through at all, have to wait for low tide and seek the help of a bridge pilot!
