A classical temple on the River Ant

This little Parthenon in wood and corrugated iron stands on the River Ant at Wayford Bridge. It is a bit sad really, neglected and rundown, a storage space for unused boats. That lawn should be covered in deck chairs occupied by ladies in floaty Art Deco frocks and gents in striped jackets and boaters, drinking cocktails brought by stewards in starched whites.

This very historic house and motley boats are far from abandoned. The owner cum builder is a founder of Vintage Wooden Boat Association. This slightly 'shabby chic' look was once the general Broadland style.
