About Reedham

This is an idyllic Broadland village situated on a bend of the delightful River Yare in a spot where the river turns to make its final journey towards open seas.

Reedham is ideally placed for cruising the waters of the Broads National Park, exploring the North Norfolk and North Suffolk coastlines and for discovering the historic city of Norwich.

The centre point of the village is its impressive church, this sits securely in its ancient churchyard surrounded by old tombs and graves from many centuries. The tower of the church dates to 1447, unfortunately owing to a fire late in the 20th century the building was severely damaged, but thanks to the goodwill of villagers and generous donations it is now restored to its former glory.

There are several picturesque locations in the village, not least the river-side pub - The Admiral Lord Nelson, this is a pleasant place sit enjoying a drink whilst watching graceful swans and boats pass by. Yet another attractive inn is The Ship, this is found close to the swing bridge which carries the line to Lowestoft.

Of interest is the War Memorial and the interesting Air Memorial which commemorates souls killed in an air collision over Reedham marshes in February of 1944. Both of these can be seen in the area known as The Hills which runs from the memorial to Mill Road.

Reedham has so many pretty places, it also has a village stores, fish and chips, boats are built in the village - these can be bought or hired, there is even a local brewery "The Humpty Dumpty" as well as several delightful inns, bed and breakfast homes and a touring park.

This fascinating village has much to offer the whole family, it is a haven for tourist boats and a place that is a joy to walk around exploring its little nooks and crannies, especially its river with its wealth of wildlife.
