Timothy West and Prunella Scales explore one of Britain’s most ancient waterways, the Norfolk Broads. It’s their first time visiting this picturesque network of slow-moving rivers, fens, marshes and waterlogged woodlands. They discover the unique way of life that developed in the Broads over the centuries. They remember the book Swallows and Amazons; visit a marshman’s cottage and the ruins of St Benet’s Abbey; and sail on a local Norfolk wherry.
