smile Hi, just returned home from a week on the broads, and I have to say the best day we had was at the Berney Arms inn, what a quaint little pub, the hospitality we received was amazing. The food was excellent, and the beer was too. We took our grandchildren with us and all they keep saying is PLEASE CAN WE GO BACK TO THAT PUB PLEASE NAN. Anyway I just want to say if it wasn't for your web site we wouldn't have known it existed, so many many thanks to you and the Berney Arms.

Hi Guys, may I introduce myself, I am the station adopter for Berney Arms, normal clean up duties require picking up the odd bit of litter and weeds. I also report directly to One Railway about any problems, e.g the white platform edges have been repainted as soon as they have been reported as fading, recently myself and other helpers have cleared the platforms of weeds and grass, repainted the back fence (still on going as we speak) planted bulbs, cleared the bramble growth at the back and had a major litter pick, when we finish the east side of the fence (past the waiting shelter) we hope to start on the station approach path.
The main request we get is increase the trains at night, sorry under railway health and safety a train cannot call at a totally unlit station during darkness, plus at Berney Arms the platform and crossing also come into the problem with night time boarding (plus it's a request stop - how would the driver see you at night)
As for the most common item picked up in the litter, well apart from fag ends it's shoes or trainers - assume the ones which got wet in the marshes.
Any problems let me know or post it on here and it will get reported ASAP to One Railway if we don't spot it first.
Regards
James

Hi. When asking around about local green lane routes the Berney Arms has cropped up several times in conversation. Checking on the O.S. maps doesn't show a public right of way for vehicles. I am a member of a 4x4 owners club and a public house at the end of a good drive would make the ideal place for local members to meet. But obviously wanted to check the situation with access and I guess parking with yourselves.

Andy Sunday, 10 July 2005 21:49
Hi, I'm pretty sure the track out to the Berney Arms is not a public right of way. Not sure who owns it, it could be the Broads authority or maybe the RSPB nature reserve through which it passes. Some is also in private hands I think. I know that using it has always been discouraged but you could try phoning the pub to find out more.

Bill Maxted Tuesday, 12 July 2005 10:10
There is a footpath and cycle route through the nature reserve but not vehicle access. It forms part of the Wherryman's way beween Reedham and Gt Yarmouth.

On behalf of myself and www.the-norfolk-broads.co.uk could I ask if anyone here knows the exact status of the moorings in front of and upstream of the Berney Arms Mill? Is this also owned by English Heritage or is the entire frontage owned by the pub? I ask because the pub are it seems attempting to only allow mooring for their patrons whilst not everyone going to look at the mill necessarily wishes a meal or a drink eek!

Really liked the old photos brought back many memories. Would be nice to have some of the other parts of the old broadland railway system relics of which still exist. (Haddiscoe High Level bridge and station for example)

Dave Rogers Friday, 8 July 2005 16:57
There are some signs that The Berney Inn have put out from the pub leading in the direction of the mill but these stop well short of the Berney Mill. There are no signs outside the Berney Mill and upstream of it and there is plenty of room for boats to moor.

Andy Sunday, 10 July 2005 21:52
I am considering adding further railway photos from the GY - Lowestoft route and possibly as far as Hadiscoe but I don't intend to expand the area covered too much.

Went for a walk across the Halvergate Marshes on Sunday, When I reached the Berney Arms I was disappointed to see that the sails still have not been replaced, and the doors padlocked. Any ideas on when the sails will be replaced, as it is already 4 years overdue!! What a shame frown

Grace and David Rogers Sunday, 19 June 2005 21:58
We visited the Berney this weekend and as you say there are still no signs that the sails will be returned onto the Berney mill. The tar finish to the outside of the mill that was applied about a year ago is already falling off due to inadequate preparation. It seems that mill is in need of urgent professional repair and is being let down badly by those responsible for its upkeep. On a more positive note the Berney pub is still going strong and the duck on the menu deserves a try.

Still no sign of the sails on the Berney Mill and the mill remains closed to the public. It can only be opened for parties by arrangement by ringing 08453010006 or 01493857900.
The 5th Berney Arms Reunion will be held at The Berney Arms pub on Sunday 4th September at 12 noon. Everyone who is interested will be made welcome.

An excellent site. I used to go to Gt Yarmouth for childhood hols in the '50's & '60's. I found the railways fascinating then, and still do today. The pictures brought back many happy memories, especially walking along beside the long wall of the Beach Station, wondering when it was ever going to end! I must get back there one day, but I'm afraid that seeing the place again will ruin some of the memories that are locked away.

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.

Andy Friday, 11 February 2005 15:51
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.

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.
