With the coming of railways and better roads for transportation of the goods, the wherries were converted into pleasure boats. Nowadays, they are seldom seen at all, having falling into disrepair over the many years. However, a number have been restored thanks to wherry enthusiasts and craft like the Albion, the wherry pictured in this kit, can still be seen. To see them gliding through the low flat Norfolk landscape is truly one of the loveliest sights I know.
