Dedicated to the memory of Roy Webster

Roy Webster loved the waters around the Norfolk villages where he lived – Dilham and Westwick as a young man, and Tunstead in his later years. 

The North Walsham and Dilham Canal featured heavily in his fishing and writing exploits, and he was keenly interested in the continuing restoration of the canal around Ebridge and Swafield. 

The former football and fishing journalist died aged 87 on January 18th. 

In the last few months of his life, his family turned some of his writings about growing up in rural Norfolk – particularly his fishing and wildlife adventures around the North Walsham and Dilham Canal – into a book called Adventures of the Boy Roy, the first print run selling out within a fortnight. A second print run is currently being processed. Profits from the sale of the book will go to the canal trust. 

If you would like a £5 book, email and you will be sent all the necessary details of how to pay, postage and packing costs and so on. 

If you would like to make a separate donation to the canal trust, this is the place to do it. 

Many thanks, from Roy’s family.
