Open Boat Event - Spark of Light 1926


View on board the oldest hire cruiser afloat, Spark of Light. Built in 1926 by the Broadland pioneer Mr Herbert Woods at his boatyard in Potter Heigham, Spark of Light formed part of the 'Light Cruiser' fleet until the 1950's and became a design replicated by many of the other Broads boating operations.

Newly restored for 2017 and returned to the Herbert Woods hire fleet you will be able to view onboard this Grand old lady of the Broads and step back in time as you uncover her colourful past and enjoy a short river trip along the river Thurne.

River trips take place each day at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, booking recommended.
