Port of Norwich

Part of the port today.

The Port of Norwich is a small port on the River Wensum at Norwich, Norfolk. The use of the river as a port stretched back at least to medieval times, however it is current standing as a port dates to an act of parliament on 28 May 1827[1]

It was still in regular use in the '60 and '70s and continues to have some limited traffic in the 2010s[2]

The port authority is Norwich City Council, who, in 2012 stated that they consider the port defunct as a commercial port[3]
