BA Notice: End of season facility closures

From 1 November our facilities at Great Yarmouth Yacht Station, Norwich Yacht Station and Reedham Quay will be closing for the winter as the sites revert to control of the respective local councils.

This means that there will be no mooring at the Yacht Stations and facilities such as toilets, showers, pump-outs, electric charging posts and water points will be closed.

Other water and electric points managed by the Authority will remain open (please note that electric posts may trip out with high tides, if boaters find a post that is not operational please let us know using the details below and we will fix it).

Our full-time and summer seasonal Broads Rangers will be continuing patrols and there will be an increased presence on the water until the end of November compared to a regular year.

Broads Control, supported by our Breydon Rangers, will also be available for tide and lower Bure bridge clearance information through November. Boaters can contact Broads Control for this information and other assistance on 01603 756056 or Broads.Control@broads-authority.gov.uk seven days a week between the hours of 9am – 5pm.

In case of emergency please contact the emergency services on 999.

With the onset of winter and increased likelihood of adverse weather conditions, we are encouraging boaters to wear life jackets, plan their journey ahead and ensure they reach their destination before darkness falls. For more safety advice please see our website and social media feeds.

If you have any questions please get in touch using our contact form or speak to Broads Control using the details provided above.

Hardley Cross Mooring Closure

Please note the following statement from the Broads Authority:

Unfortunately, following serious damage as a result of the recent storms and high tides, we have fully closed our 24 hour moorings at Hardley Cross due to the site being unsafe.
The necessary repair work has been added to our maintenance programme and will be undertaken as soon as we are able to do so.
This follows a previous closure of a 22m section of the site earlier this year (June 2020) due to safety concerns.
Please ensure you have back up mooring options when visiting the area during busy times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
