The Broads Guidebook

The Broads comprises a network of mostly navigable rivers and lakes in the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk. It covers an area of 117 square miles, and around 120 miles of navigable waterways. There are seven rivers and 63 broads, mostly less than 4 metres (13 ft) deep. The Angles Way, Weavers’ Way and Wherryman’s Way are all within The Broads.
The Broads is not a National Park; rather,  it is a special area with a level of protection equivalent to a national park, constituted by the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Act 1988. The Broads Authority, a special statutory authority responsible for managing the area, became operational in 1989.
