“★★★★★ A trip to Norfolk isn't the same without one of Ross' guided trips, funny and very informative.” Michael


About Ross Warrell

Ross has been leading wildlife boat trips on the Norfolk Broads since 1997. He has always had a love of boats and birds having been taken sailing on the Broads by his father, who moved to Norfolk because of his love of sailing.

He achieved an Honours degree in Marine Biology at Swansea and, together with his years of pratical experience, this has culminated in Ross restoring and running the mv Lady Ann on Horsey Mere. Anyone who takes one of the wildlife boat trips will delight in Ross' detailed knowledge, his fine ear for birdsong and his excellent sense of humour.

In the winter months, when he isn't overhauling mv Lady Ann ready for the following season, Ross can be found in Henry VIII's Roasting Kitchen at Hampton Court or the newly re-opened Chocolate Kitchen where he works as an Historical Interpreter.

Hickling Broad Regatta

In 1999 Ross was instrumental in re-starting the Hickling Broad Regatta, very popular in the 1950s, which is held annually on the second Saturday & Sunday of August. An Open Regatta, it's run from Hickling's Pleasure Boat Inn, (Staithe Rd, Hickling, Norwich, Norfolk NR12 0YJ 01692 598870) at the end of the dyke. Half-deckers, cruisers, punts and more - all are welcome to enter on the day.
