This live webcam is situated on the Burnham Overy Boathouse which is a lovely building filled with character. Burnham Thorpe, the birthplace of Horatio Nelson, lies 1 mile to the south-east of Burnham Overy and historically Burnham Overy was the port for the surrounding villages of the Burnhams. Between Burnham Overy Staithe and the sea, the river spreads out into multiple tidal creeks through the salt marshes finally reaching the sea by passing though Burnham Harbour.
According to various letters and documents that are available in archives, Nelson learned to row and to sail a dinghy at Burnham Overy Staithe, at the age of just 10 which was only two years before he joined the Navy.
