For centuries the distinctive black sail of the wherry was a common sight along the River Yare. These magnificent craft plied their trade from Norwich to Great Yarmouth, transporting everything from coal and timber to market produce, ice and thatching reed. While the wherry survives today only in a handful of restored vessels the river remains, as do the staithes, the dykes and many of the wayside pubs once frequented by the wherrymen.

Once you start looking, their ghosts are everywhere. In 2005, the 35-mile long Wherryman’s Way was unveiled, opening up the riverside footpaths to a new generation of walkers. In this book the author has taken a step further, not only covering the main route but providing an opportunity for individuals, families and walking groups to explore the heritage of the Wherryman’s Way by providing guides to the twelve circular walks which branch off from it.

The book is illuminated with photographs and stories relating to features connected with the route, from abandoned windmills to long forgotten ferries, and eccentric characters such as Billy Bluelight and the irascible wildfowler known as ‘Old Scientific’. This book is a must for anyone who loves what the wherrymen themselves called ‘The Norwich River’.

Steve Silk is an assistant editor for the BBC, working on its Look East news programme based in Norwich. He lives in Loddon, half way along the Wherryman’s Way.
