Your readers may be interested to know that the cap was put back on Polkey's Mill earlier this week and it was mentioned on local TV and local radio. There is also an article about Berney Arms in the August edition of Norfolk Journal. There is still no signs of the sails going back on the Berney Arms mill!
The 4th Berney Arms Reunion will be on Sunday September 5th 2004 at the Berney Arms Inn,and everyone is welcome to come along.

A great site and of real interest to me as I have recently been in the area again. Without sites like this, you would never realise what has been lost. Does anyone have or know of any pictures of Belton Station?

Hi Matthew
Look for a book called "Eastern Main Lines - Saxmundham to Yarmouth" by Richard Adderson and Graham Kenworthy, published in 2001 by Middleton Press, ISBN 1-901706-699. There are 7 or 8 photos of the station plus maps.

I went to Great Yarmouth many years ago while at the Norfolk Broads as a child. I love the site and all the historical information!

The BBC Norfolk webpage has now added a webcam that is attached to the Broads Authority launch that patrols the Waveney, Yare, and Breydon areas. The link is;
#@*%!://www.bbc.co.uk/norfolk/webcams/norwich_mobile.shtml
Pics are updated about every 15-25 mins tides and operations permitting, all through the summer. I was alerted via the Broads Authority mailing list.

Attached is a pic I saved earlier today, approaching Berney Arms High Mill;- I'm almost sure it's the mill at Berney Arms as about 30-45 mins later, the launch was across Breydon and there was a pic along Yarmouth Yacht Station.

If it is the Mill, then it would seem that the sails have yet to be reinstalled.

P.S. Andrew, I'm visiting the Broads next week for 3 days, so I may have some more pics for your site soon. Cheers

My mother's side are Berneys from the Vallee du Joux in Switzerland. I am interested in all things Berney.

Really enjoyed your website.
Very nostalgic for me as I went on holiday to Yarmouth from 1946 to 1959. Until 1957, we travelled by special train over the M&GN via SAXBY, SUTTON BRIDGE, SOUTH LYNN and MELTON CONSTABLE; I think it took about six hours to get there! Happy days!

Read your site with great interest: I'm looking for information on an accident which occured at Vauxhall Station, Great Yarmouth on the afternoon of Thursday June 17th, 1897. If anyone can point me in the right direction for research, eg GER accident logs? please get in touch.
Thanks,
Lee

Oh yes, one more thing. The station's original sign has been reinstated. I read it in the Lowestoft Journal a few weeks ago.

I completely forgot to look on the walk I took, so can anyone confirm that it is back?

Andy Friday, 18 June 2004 20:21
The 'old' sign is back but it's not the original. It's an excellent copy made to the same style. Take a look at the pictures on my website, see the Berney Arms Railways page and follow the link for the second page of photos.

Thanks for all the replies. Can't wait to see them go back up.

Took another walk across Halvergate marshes the other week (as mentioned the paths are still very hard to see) so ended up on the railway line 50m from the station, whoops!

Got to the mill and saw that some progress had been made and the cap was on (when I last came there was no cap on whatsoever, so was happy to see that.

Then walked back along Breydon water, ending up at the Asda carpark, Must say it was a great day out.

I moved to Great Yarmouth in 1985 from London... I love to look into the past of Gt Yarm.
Great site with loads of information.... hope it grows bigger with more photos and information (I want to know what Lawn Avenue was like when the trains ran along the rear of some of the houses.

Very informative site!! Well Done. And Keep It Up!

Do you know if the sails are back up on the Berney Arms? They seem to have been down for quite some time!!

Andy Wednesday, 5 May 2004 11:51
I'm not sure but I don't believe the sails will go back until 2005.

Grace Rogers Thursday, 6 May 2004 16:23
The latest information is that the sails should be back on the mill this year.

Thanks for a good site.
The Berney Windmill is still in the process of being renovated. (April 2004) The outer walls have now been painted but the sails of the mill are still off and have not been replaced with new ones.
The Berney Arms Pub serves good food and is well worth a visit. There is a separate restaurant at the back of the pub.

smile I was stationed over there in the Air Force at Sheperds Grove left there in 58. Did travel with an airman by the name of Buddy Francis. We went to Gt. Yarmouth a lot. He married a girl by the name of Audrey.
We had a lot of fun over there, a lot of good times. I still email a nurse over in Gorleston. good site. Dick

I was brought up in Norfolk, moved down there when I was three from Aberdeen. Although I moved back up when I was nine, I still regard Norfolk as home. I had the happiest childhood anyone could wish for - esp in great yarmouth with the fun fairs and the shows, the great weather (its better than the North of Scotland - I can tell you!)

Wally's Windmill - anyone remember that? Going out into the broads on a boat.

I always have been drawn back to East Anglia and I always will!

p.s I always keep an eye on how the canaries are doing.

hopefully when greater anglia railways takes over from anglia railways they will improve the train service to and from berney arms railway station as it is farcical at present for all the passengers with anglia rover tickets who would like to visit the mill the pub and the river at that point particularly as it is a very long way to walk there from the village by footpath there being no road and few people have a boat as the only other means of access see what you can do a train about once an hour alternately each way giving a two ho#@*%!y service in one direction from about 8am to 5pm in winter and say 9pm in summer

Welcome to the Berney Arms Web and thank you for visiting my local history pages. Unfortunately the original guestbook has experienced problems lately and all the old comments have been lost. I have now set up this new one and would be very pleased to receive any messages or questions relating to Berney Arms or the immediate area. If you left a message previously then please feel free to do so again. I am also keen to receive any feedback on the website content.
