Coltishall – August 26th

Regular visitors to this site will know that we have a commemoration of the Aylsham navigation on Coltishall Common on the afternoon of August 26th 2012 and we will soon be publishing some detailed plans of what’s happening. It will include the wherry Albion and possibly other historic boats, games, stalls, exhibitions, and much much more. There will be several ways of getting there and we have been offered the use of Roys overspill car park opposite the Bure Valley Railway Station in Wroxham (Hoveton to be accurate) from where we will be operating a shuttle service by historic old coach. You could also arrive by rail either from the Bittern Line or by way of the BVR and use the same bus transfer.

We will also be carrying a token cargo down the Navigation from Aylsham to meet with the Albion by canoe. A timetable will be issued and there will be an opportunity for you to attend along the river before coming on to Coltishall to cheer them on.

We still need a lot of people to assist with stalls and also as marshalls – if you or an organisation you represent would like to be involved please contact us. You might even like to have a stall. Contact stu.wilson100@btinternet.com
