Rockland Broad

Lower Rd Rockland St Mary

Down in the less-visited southern Broads, Rockland Broad is one of the least-known of all the Broads, but also one of the most beautiful – and characteristic – Broadland landscapes. The light and the views are glorious, and a well-laid path runs half a mile or so around one side, where you can spot all kinds of bird life from the hide in its far corner – the Rockland Marches RSPB reserve – before continuing on along Fleet Dike, linking the Broad with the main river. You can follow this all the way along to the Beachamp Arms, opposite Buckenham Marshes on the opposite bank, about a half-an-hour walk – following, in effect, the Wherryman’s Way. There are moorings at Rockland staithe, where the path starts, and a car park, although the New Inn opposite has sadly closed down.
