MUSEUM OF THE BROADS
 

The Museum of the Broads is situated off the A149 and on Stalham Staithe.  It has many sheds containing boats and artefacts and other items and boats on display outside.  There is a boat moored up on the river called the 'Falcon' which is powered by steam and takes passengers for trips of about an hour's duration.  Brundall Local History Group was asked by the curator, Nicola Hems, if they would like to put on an exhibition during the Heritage Weekend from 10th to 11th September 2016.  We were offered the Sunday for our display.  Three of the members of the Group arranged two displays on our table top units, one entitled 'Brundall: A Broadland Village' and the other, 'Commorating Brundall during the First World War'.  All the photographs were from our own archive.  We had copies of our books for sale some of which were sold.  Much interest was shown by the public.

These two photographs show the two displays, Barbara Ayers, our Secretary is on the right hand one.

These three photographs are of the 'Falcon'.  You can see what a delightful broads boat she is.
