Home of wherry Albion, built in 1898, and the privately owned wherry Maud, built in 1899. Trading wherries of this kind were once a common sight on the Broads waterways, but Albion and Maud are the last two remaining. Some wherries were converted for passenger/pleasure use, while a few were later constructed solely for this purpose: A few of these 'Pleasure' wherries have also survived. Maud is of the usual clinker hull (overlapping planks) while Albion is a one of a kind carvel hulled wherry: see Wikipedia __http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carvel_(boat_building)__Albion can be hired with crew for a fantastic day out on the Broads waterways.____About the model: Trees surrounding the base have been uploaded separately.
