Potter Heigham

Potter Heigham is a village on the River Thurne in Norfolk, England within The Broads National Park.

It is famed for its 700 year old medieval bridge. The bridge opening is so narrow that only small cruisers can pass through it, and then only at low water with the help of a pilot.

A modern roadbridge is close by.

The village is part of the Ludham - Potter Heigham NNR, a National Nature Reserve.

Saint Nicholas' church nearby is famed for its hammerbeam[?] roof.
