Ch4 Great Canal Journeys Series 8 1of2 Norfolk Broads

Tim and Pru take to the helm to explore the waterways of the Norfolk Broads and the Marne-Rhine Canal.

Part 1: Norfolk Broads
Tim and Pru 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.


Part 2: Marne-Rhine Canal
Tim and Pru set off on their third adventure along the French canal system, as they travel down the Marne-Rhine Canal in Alsace and Lorraine, close to the German border. Their journey takes in enchanted forests and fairy-tale castles; mountains and valleys; the baffling French lock system; local wines; and a visit to Strasbourg and the European Parliament.
