Or you can take a train from Great Yarmouth or Norwich and walk a ¼ mile. It
is a ‘request halt’—so on the way back you have to flag down the train. This is
one of the most remote train stations in the British Isle—over two miles
from a road.
Once there, you can admire (from the outside) Berney Arms Mill, which
is a protected building, in the care of English Heritage. Unfortunately,
it is not open to the public at the moment (the sails have recently been put back on)—see www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/ConProperty.4.
You can get a drink or a meal at the pub—The Berney Arms. It has tables to sit outside and look at the river ...
Arms got its name from Thomas Trench Berney, a local landowner, probably
via the name of the local pub named after him, The Berney Arms, still
an important part of the community. As for Norfolk, now a county in
England’s East Anglia region (the old eastern region of the Angles), its name comes
fromOld EnglishNorðfolc “Northern People.” The name England, too, refers to the Angles (Old English Ęngla land “Land of the Angles”) whose ancestors
immigrated to Britain from what is now Germany’s Schleswig region, specifically from the area called Angeln, which is situated
close to today’s German-Danish border.
