Nice site. Visiting as my family are local:mother was born in Wickhampton & father in Reedham. I also have railway connections: my grandfather, Walter (Tiny) Powles was head porter at Reedham & later stationmaster at Yarmouth Vauxhall.

I am trying to find Robert McGloughlin who used to own Berney Arms Inn with his partner Stephen. I used to stay with them at the pub when i was a little girl, helping out in the kitchen, i was a very close friend. If anyone knows of them can you let me know. Lost touch a few years ago and trying to get back in touch. Thanks

Loads of nostalgia, I used to spend all my holidays in the farm & windmill opposite the Berney Arms Windmill, my Mother would row me across the river and send me shopping in Gt Yarmouth, at the tender at age 10! Innocent times 47 years ago.

Very interesting site.

Bootiful scenery big grin It makes a nice change from the hills of the Peak District here. As they say though, you don't really appreciate what's on your doorstep. wink

Thanks for that - we have stayed at Gales Cruisers at Loddon/Chedgrave and had identified the Reedham Ferry site as a base for more Wherrymans Way but not thought of it for Weavers Way!

We have been walking sections of the Weavers Way for the last few years using our motorhome as a base. Is there a suitable caravan/camp site south of Acle that would be suitable to do this section to Yarmouth and return by train to Acle?

Site is a great idea.
Will it be possible to put the pub opening times on the website?

Andy (site admin) Wednesday, 14 April 2010 08:09
Hi there. The site has no direct connection with the pub so it's always best to phone them on 01493 700303 to check times.

The broads authority have purchased 37 met of quay heading at The Berney Moorings quite close to the windmill. There will be free 24 hour hour moorings for boaters and eventually will have mains electric hook up points...Dave R

I am an ex-Railwayman and at one time was part of the Norwich Station Servicing Team, which cleaned and maintained all the unmanned stations on the lines from Norwich to Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and Sheringham, whilst also being the Yarmouth lampman. I was the lampman 3 days a week and with the servicing team the other 2 days.

It was my job to clean and refill the oil lamps in the semaphore signals at Brundall, Acle, Lingwood and Great Yarmouth and the lamp on the station at Berney Arms. As far as I know I was the last person to do the lamp at Berney Arms because there was a timetable change in about 1993 or 1994 so that trains would no longer stop there after dark and I had to withdraw the lamp. In those days it was accessed by the metal ladder shown in one of your pictures. I would have to get a train from Yarmouth, taking a fresh lamp with me, and swap them over when we got there. Also on the sevicing team was Ivor Broom who had done the lamps at Berney Arms when there was a station building and signal box there. The station had no running water so fresh water had to be delivered by train every day. I forget the name of the people who lived there then.

Apparently there used to be more houses on the marshes in those days and I'm told that the lady was the post mistress and ticket seller and her husband used to be the signalman and also delivered post to outlying houses by rowing boat. I hope this is of interest.
