Filby Broad is one of the Trinity Broads, along with Ormesby Broad and Rollesby Broad, linked but land locked, so they are not connected to the rest of the Broads network. To further protect the local environment and eco system, access to the Broad is restricted and granted exclusively to a limited number of village residents, courtesy of permits awarded by the Parish Council. We are advised that a short waiting list is in operation.

This status ensures that Filby Broad benefits from a level of privacy, peace and tranquility that is rarely found elsewhere on the Norfolk Broads.
