Reedham village is located alongside the River Yare in the east of the Norfolk Broads. It is just over seven miles south west of the seaside town of Great Yarmouth and has a permanent population of around 1200 people. There is a considerable amount of marshland within the area which includes the remote settlement known as Berney Arms.
A railway station offers a regular service to Norwich and Lowestoft where ongoing connections are available. A swing bridge is in use to take the railway line across the river.
On the outskirts of the village is a chain-driven vehicle ferry, the only one of it’s type on the Norfolk Broads. A ferry has operated from this location for almost four hundred years. Despite only having a capacity of three vehicles, this short crossing can save a road journey of almost thirty miles.
Atractions locally include Polkey’s Mill, a 19th Century grade II listed windpump.
