More about this scene


Caption for Wroxham, Bure Court C1940: This is a typical example of many luxury homes built in the first half of the 20th century which enabled owners to enjoy life beside the water. The roof is thatched with local reed, and the principal rooms are elevated to avoid floods and to afford excellent views of the waterways. An interesting balcony has steps down to the garden, where leisure furniture and croquet hoops indicate a relaxed way of life. A motor launch is tied up at the private mooring.
