As a great lover of Norfolk I was intrigued by your piece on the telly tonight. I have never heard of Berney Arms but will try to get there on my next visit sometime in the summer.

Just seen your special station on the ITV1 programme 'Tales from the country'. Wow it's so good to see that a little used station like this can survive, and well done to you for keeping it that way the pub looks nice too. smile

Much enjoyed your little piece on ITV this evening.
My wife spent some time in the '50s at Reedham Rectory (her uncle was then the Rector) and well remembers Dr Gray.
We know the Berney family who supported the church so well in past times.

Couldn't resist looking you up after Selina's programme.
I'll have a more thorough look in a short while but it looks an interesting web site.

I am amazed that the Berney Windmill has fallen into such a state of neglect. I have very happy memories of the area in the late fifties. For a period of around five years I attended summer camps based on Salhouse Broad. A part of the time was spent sailing around the Broads under the watchful eye of "Nat" aboard the wherry " ALBION ". There were always two highlights connected with the wherry trip, the first was " shooting " the bridge at Potter Heigham. I remember the first time we approached it and " Nat " told me what he was about to do, as far as I could see it was mission impossible. A large crowd gathered on the bridge and hey presto down comes the sail and mast and we gracefully pass under the bridge with only inches to spare all round. The second highlight was to moor up for the night alongside the Mill where we were free to climb all over it and use the ground floor to prepare and cook our evening meal. When I get the time I will dig out some of my old photos and bring them round for you to see! As you will see I live in your adopted town.

Last night following the new guestbook comments, I e-mailed Jeff Dyer, and pointed him toward this website, I also asked him for an update. This is his reply this evening:

"Mark,

I have to advise that Thompsons had to divert on to emergency work at mills at various locations across the country because of the recent stormy weather. I will be pressing Thompsons to address Berney Arms late January/early February and keep you advised of definite dates nearer the time.

Regards,

Jeff Dyer"

It is now 20th February 07 and it will surprise no one that again nothing is happening to the Berney Mill. If they carry on like this its quite possible that nothing will be done this year.

I walked out to Berney Arms today and not a soul was to be seen, I have my fingers crossed that perhaps work may begin later in the week? But as usual with EH I am very doubtful.

Hi Ian,
I am not surprised by your post we have had so many promises and false starts in the last 6 years about the repairs to the Berney Mill. Lets hope that E.H. get their act together at last and do something positive.

Andy Monday, 15 January 2007 22:26
Thanks for the update. I'm due to visit in April, I wonder whether it will actually be done by then? If anyone manages to take any pictures I would love to add them to this website.

Lovely pictures of Berney Arms Station - especially the one of the lady lighting the gas lamp. I'm a native of Suffolk and a lover of East Anglian railways, but I only got round to alighting at Berney Arms for the first time in June 2005.
Best of luck with your web site.

I received this update from Jeff Dyer at EH yesterday:

"Just a brief note to advise that subject to the weather the reinstatement of the sails is planned for the week commencing 15 January. Will provide definite date/s once known.

Regards,

Jeff."

A well designed site, and especially interesting for me as I grew up right next-door to Gorleston Railway Station (in Clarence Road) which was my playground as a kid. I also had a paper round, and grocery deliveries too, covering the area from Bells Road right through to the golf course, so the photos of all the changes around that area were a trip down memory lane for me.
Thank Q!

I emailed Jeff Dyer at English Heritage again earlier this week requesting an update, following the previous posts. This is reply to me today:

"I had fully expected that the sails and fantail would have been put in place by mid-October. Unfortunately there have been complications. The current programme is for the fantail to be assembled and hoisted in to place during the first half of December 2006. The main sails will be reinstated in January 2007. I will make a point of ensuring that you are advised as to the exact dates upon which this work takes place."

I'll post any new info here if I get it.

The new sails on Polkey's Mill look like the ones meant for the Berney Arms. LOL.
On the matter it looks like a call or email to EH or to a local newspaper/TV, I'm very pissed that a lot of own funded mills including Polkey's Mill now look great but the best of them still looks like a shell.

Don't know what the EH are up to.

Still no signs of sails at Berney Arms windmill!!!!
There is little chance of more trains after the railway line is renewed.

roll eyes (sarcastic) With the relaid track will there be more fast trains whizzing up and down the track between Great Yarmouth and Reedham?

Will there be relief boats at Berney Arms when the railway closes for a fortnight for track relaying?

Latest information from Jeff Dyer, the Projects Manager at English Heritage.

"Just a brief note to say that R.Thompson & Son are currently working on the stocks, clamps and sails at their yard in Lincolnshire and plan to assemble and install these components and the fantail in mid-October. Unfortunately this operation has been delayed by a couple of emergency jobs that Thompsons have had to carry out on mills elsewhere."

It looks like something is happening at last!
