River Yare, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. In much of East Anglia, waterways offered a ready means of transport for bulk goods, and the traditional working boat was called a wherry. Wherries were powered by sails, though here the wherry Albion is being towed from its berth by a motor launch on a voyage to Lowestoft. Photographed by Hallam Ashley

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, the tranquil River Yare in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, is dotted with the distinctive silhouettes of traditional wherries against a backdrop of rolling clouds. The serene waterway, a vital artery for transportation in much of East Anglia, is home to these iconic boats, which were once the primary means of transporting bulk goods along the region's waterways. In this particular scene, the wherry Albion is being gently towed from its berth by a motor launch, its sails furled and its hull gliding effortlessly through the water. The sun casts a warm, golden glow over the scene, reflecting off the rippling surface of the river and illuminating the intricate details of the wherry's wooden hull. The clouds above mirror the undulating shape of the water, adding a sense of movement and dynamism to the otherwise still image. The contrast between the solidity of the boats and the fluidity of the water and sky creates a beautiful tableau, a snapshot of a bygone era in the rich maritime history of Norfolk. The photograph, taken by renowned photographer Hallam Ashley, captures the essence of the wherry and the river Yare, a testament to the beauty and charm of the region's waterways and the boats that have sailed upon them for centuries. This image is not only a visual delight but also a reminder of the important role these traditional boats played in the lives of the people of East Anglia and the unique character they have left behind.
