An upcoming event on the Norfolk Broads will include a trip on a historic wherry and a fish and chip supper. 

Wherry Yacht Charter is a charity that operates five of the remaining eight wherries on the Norfolk Broads - Olive, Norada, White Moth, Hathor and Ardea. 

The 2024 season begins in May, with the option to charter one of the Edwardian sailing boats or book a spot on a scheduled trip.

Passengers will travel on either Olive, Norada or White Moth and a fish and chip supper will be served in the clubhouse. 

These surviving wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham-based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins.

They spent more than three decades within his hire fleet, followed by a period of mixed fortunes in private ownership after the Second World War.

They were then reunited in 2012 by the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust. 

There is a choice of either a battered fish fillet or scampi, both served with hand-cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce, or a vegetarian option.

Also included in the price is a glass of wine, beer or soft drink with your meal.
