We eventually made it to Berney Arms on the 11:36 train from Norwich, after the 7:37 train had been diverted via Acle. The marshes at Berney was so flooded it would have been almost impossible to walk anywhere without great problems.

Good to see you made it there eventually Sheila!

To Berney, or not to Berney - that was the question.
The e-mail from Network Rail said the 0736 would go to Berney; the website sold me a ticket 2 days before the 24th; the staff told me at the station on the morning I could get to Berney; the matrix sign was ambivalent - it listed BA as a stop but underneath said we would go via Acle! But then matrix signs can't read maps.
So I asked the driver which way he was intending to go and as he said he would turn left at Reedham I thought I was OK.
It was only when we stopped at Brundall, the last possible moment for a decision, that the announcement came to say it was Acle for us, not Berney at all.
So I, Sheila and Paul Hutchinson with a Radio Norfolk sound crew had a ride to Yarmouth. In the rain! Now who wants to go to Yarmouth in the rain?
The GA staff were great but back home by 0930 I can only dream about fulfilling a 16-month old idea.
Perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub; for in that sleep what dreams may come that we have taken ourselves to Berney Arms against a sea of troubles, well marshes and Network Rail anyway. confused

I was told today by Greater Anglia that the first train to stop at BA will be the 0736 from Norwich on Mon Feb 24, 2020. I intend to be on it and be the first to alight there for ages. As the first return train is 1524 I shall walk to Acle (5.5 miles) for the bus to Norwich. Anybody care to join me?

Good to know that trains will be stopping again soon. I'll be away that week or I would definitely be joining you but unfortunately I can't.

Visited the area today, was a wonderful walk which brought up a mass of questions about the area. Found the mill to be shut to public, the freehouse closed and a bar open on the side. The owner was more than happy to point us in the right direction. The train line is now closed until further notice too. Was great to come on here and read more about the area.

Andy Tuesday, 2 July 2019 14:04
Thanks for the message Jasmine, I'm glad you enjoyed the walk. Good to hear that a bar has opened, even if not the full pub. The railway line was due to re-open on 31st March but the upgrade project has overrun unfortunately. Hopefully it won't be too long though.

Does anyone know what is happening to the Berney Arms pub and the café in the building just upstream of the pub. All looks deserted at present.

Sheila Tuesday, 13 March 2018 05:22
Pub will remain closed but the café will be open at Easter weekend.

The shelter blew down in the strong winds. Hopefully there will be a replacement soon.

Some lines will never re-open because the track was never preserved and built-on! Examples of trackbeds retained are Halewood Triangle to Aintree will be reinstated within the next 10 years under Merseytravel, the Integrated Transport Authority for Liverpool. The trackbed is presently used as a Sustrans Cycle Track. Platforms of some stations are still intact. Great Yarmouth should have retained its trackbeds for future use, such as for light rail transit systems.

The berney arms windmill will be open to the public on sunday the 26th of june.
From 10 till 4 refreshments will be available.
There is no vehicular access. There are 4 trains each way to berney on a Sunday so you could have a good day out.you can also walk there from gt yarmouth or reedham. Plenty of mooring places near the mill.
