Barton Turf

Barton Turf lies at the north end of Barton Broad, which itself is on the pretty River Ant. It is reputed that Lord Nelson, who grew up in Norfolk, learned to sail on Barton Broad. The village is barely more than a hamlet, with a population of less than 500 people. If you want the peace and quiet of a small village, this is the place for you. Barton Turfis a 30 minute drive from Norwich centre.

Things to see and do:
Barton Board Walk is a track through the differing habitats of the Norfolk Broads. It starts from a location close to the village of Neatishead, which is 5 minutes away by car or around a 45 minute walk. From reed beds to scrubby marshland, you are taken on a delightful journey to a point overlooking Barton Broad. From here you have a panoramic vista of this beautiful expanse of water with its many waterfowl. More details can be found HERE. The river above Ludham Bridge is very scenic and it really is worth hiring a self drive boat for a few hours to explore Barton Turf and the villages of Dilham, Neatishead and Irstead. The nearest boat hire centre is Sutton Staithe Boatyard, which is 10 minutes away using the A149.
