River Licensing Information

License Authority

Broads Authority

Located in the Norfolk Broads, the River Chet is a beautiful paddle for anyone looking to explore.

The Chet is only a few miles long, and is located to the south of Norfolk. Rising in Poringland it flows east towards Loddon and emptying into the River Yare.

A pretty river with plenty of wildlife to spot, this tidal, narrow river flows through the Hardley Flood nature reserve. It’s a popular river with fishermen due to the healthy population of bream and roach.

The River Chet is managed by the Broads Authority. Paddle UK members can paddle the river without having to purchase a day ticket, but please remember to keep your membership card with you as you may be asked to produce it.

Not a Paddle UK member? Day or week tickets can be purchased through the Broads Authority directly.
