The length of Berney Arms platform is about the length of one or possibly two coaches of a normal train.

Can anyone tell me the length of the usable bit of Berney Arms station platform?

I've had a look around your excellent site and can't find the answer.

Hi Darren,
We visited the Berney Arms this weekend and walked over to the station and measured it. The exact length of the raised part of the platform is 22.5 met.

smile With a surname like mine I am interested as to how this mill got the name "Polkey's mill. I know it came from Polkey Thaxter, but where did the first part originate?

Can anyone give advise about when the sails will be returned onto the Berney Windmill. They seem to have been missing for about 3 years now and it would be good to see the mill back in action again.

Hi Dave
Take a look at Ron's message (21). It looks like it will be sometime this Spring, i.e. soon!

Nice site. I'm not sure if I'm anyway related to this area (I'm 6th generation Canadian) but I think our family might have comes from Kent or Norfolk. The train station reminds me of one I saw in Nova Scotia last September...in Orangedale.

Shorebase has 5 new aerial photos up, taken today, which includes one of Breydon, and one of Berney Arms which shows the still sail-less mill.

When the new rail timetable commences on the 12th December 2004 there are four trains a day Mondays to Saturdays which stop at Berney Arms on request. Two are in the Great Yarmouth direction in the morning and two in the Norwich direction in the afternoon. However on Sundays there are eight trains, four in each direction.

I enjoyed your website very much. I am planning to come the the UK next May and hope to photograph as many mills as I can. I'm also an artist and want to see where Edward Seago and John Constable painted.

Hopefully the new train timetable starting on December 12th will include many more trains stopping at Berney Arms railway station.

smile Congratulations on an excellent web site. It bought back many happy memories of holidays in the Yarmouth area and of my one return trip out to Berney Arms. I'm sure this site will be of benefit to railway enthusiasts such as myself who are looking up details on the railways of the area. I found what I was looking for and more besides.

I'm quite excited about discovering this place. Have heard about it when I was a child hanging about the adults - look forward to visiting one day!

Although the direct line from Lowestoft to Great Yarmouth was taken up it is still possible to travel between the two towns regularly by changing just once either at Brundall then via Acle or at Reedham then via Berney Arms one just crosses to the other platform at either station to catch the second train but you need to check connections carefully to avoid hanging around unnecessarily and the trains are much less frequent on Sundays. Carry a pack of cheese biscuits and a plastic litre bottle of bitter lemon with a screw top to keep your strength up whilst waiting for the connection.

We have just returned this weekend from a visit to The Berney Arms in our boat - Eastern Dawn.
The sails on the Berney Mill are still missing and there is no evidence of any building work about to commence on the Mill in order to put the sails back on. The mill has been painted up on the outside and new windows put in and the new cap is in place waiting for the sails to be put back on. The mill is no longer open to the public as it was a year ago and now is locked up and stands apparently deserted which is a great shame for such a historical place. We look forward to the day when the sails are finally hoisted and secured into place after a wait of several years.
The Berney Arms pub continues to be a popular place and the meals, beer and hospitality are excellant.
The moorings from The Berney Mill down to the pub have been renewed in recent years and offer good and safe moorings for visiting craft. The moorings are ideally placed for boats waiting for bridge lifts at Great Yarmouth in order to go out to sea and for those craft coming in from the sea and going onto the southern broads.

Can you tell me when the ARMS closes for winter. Like to stay on our boat and see the sun come up.
Walk to Yarmouth and train back smile

I guess you're referring to the Berney Arms pub? Try phoning them on 01493 700303 to see what the latest is at it may have changed hands since I visited.

One thing I love about the rail network in and around Lowestoft and Yarmouth (inc. Berney Arms) are all the wonderful traditional features the lines have. For instance, the traditional signalling methods (semaphore signalling) and the old swing bridges and victorian signal boxes. I hope these are not removed for a very long time!

It is possible to reopen Aldeby former mainline railway station to Great Yarmouth by relaying the short section of track to Haddiscoe and also the short spur from Reedham swing bridge to Berney Arms. This would also be of great benefit to all the residents of nearby Wheatacre. Connections to Norwich can be made at Haddiscoe or Berney Arms or Great Yarmouth.

Ian Martin Wednesday, 6 October 2004 21:42
very true, i really don't see why so many lines were closed during nationalisation of the rail network. A stupid closure in my eyes was the Yarmouth Lowestoft rail link, i can imagine that a service like this would be used frequently.
