A beautiful river on the Norfolk Broads, the River Thurne is 7 miles long. It connects several broads to the main ‘network’ making it a great river for a full day of exploring.
The river is managed by the Broads Authority, which is included in British Canoeing membership. However if you’re not a member, day and week passes can also be bought directly from the Authority.
Reed fringed, River Thurne is perfect for a recreational paddle. It connects Matham Broad, Candle Dyke, Heigham Sound, Horsey Mere and Hickling Broad.
As well as being a haven for wildlife, the river boasts several drainage mills in various states of repair which make fascinating points of interest along the route, and a medieval bridge at Potter Heigham too, built in 1385 and a real Broads landmark!
